BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 61s! [ud


I followed these steps to get the error
1. Installed F11Alpha on x3650
2. qemu-img create -f qcow2 Fedora-11-Alpha.qcow2
3. qemu-kvm -cdrom Fedora-11-Alpha-x86_64-DVD.iso  -drive file=Fedora-11-Alpha.qcow2,if=scsi -vnc :2
-m 512 -serial stdio
Last step started the installation and got the above call trace.

This call trace is specifically produced when "if=scsi" and "qcow2" is used

=Comment: #1=================================================
Anoop V. Chakkalakkal <anoop.vijayan@in.ibm.com> - 
There are problems reported with KVM paravirt clock
[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475598]. But the patch
[http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-kernel-list/2009-January/msg00109.html] for disabling this
seems to present in the kernel.

Is it on the guest that the error message shows up? or in the base machine? Accordingly, could you
please try booting the respective kernel with clocksource=acpi_pm?

Another thing to try is disable freq. scaling
echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

Error message was see in guest machine. while booting up the guest installation. And the call trace
is not 100% reproducible. However, i have seen this around 5 times.

> Accordingly, could you please try booting the respective kernel with clocksource=acpi_pm?
I tried multiple times with this option in guest and i have not see the problem.

Pretty sure this is a guest pvmmu issue in the F11Alpha kernel which has since been fixed. Please re-open if you see it again in the beta
