This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.39. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Can you set up the SysRq key as described in Documentation/sysrq.txt?
This might help you get some information about what the system is doing
during the wait time.
My guess is that your kernel is spinning with interrupts disabled, and
that RCU eventually tries to complain about this. The possible causes
of this are listed in Documentation/RCU/stallwarn.txt.

Fix for Ravi Kulkarni
It looks like I accidentally sent the real patch privately to Ravi, so I linked in the correct patch above. Florian, please accept my apologies for the confusion.
No problem at all. It's just book-keeping which will sort itself out later anyway. It should in no way impede on any development/bugfixing. Thx for the note though.
I tested with Peter's patch below
and Paul's patch https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/12/313
also works fine for me now. thanks.
Fixed by commit b0d304172f49061b4ff78f9e2b02719ac69c8a7e .
