I am running SMP=y without seeing the problem.

Attached is the compressed config file I used for a run on a POWER
machine. I have used similar config files for x86. For this run, I built
LTP, installed it, started rcutorture, ran LTP, then ended rcutorture.

The only other thing I can think of is that Alexey's machines are
somehow managing to nest NMIs or something. I can produce a fix for
that, but have no way of testing it.

Thoughts?

Thanx, Paul
