Hi,

I am hitting this soft lock issue while running this scenario on 
2.6.31-rc7 kernel on SystemX 32 bit on multiple machines.

Opened bug : http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14150

Scenario:
    - While running cpu controller latency testcase from LTP same time 
on two containers.

Steps:
1. Create two container e.g:
    lxc-execute -n foo1 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash
    lxc-execute -n foo2 -f /usr/etc/lxc/lxc-macvlan.conf /bin/bash
2. Compile ltp-full-20090731.tgz on host.
3. Either you run cpu_latency testcase alone or run "./runltp -f 
controllers" at same time on both the containers.
4. After testcase execution completes, you can see this message in dmesg.

Expected Result:
    - Should not reproduce soft lock up issue.
- This reproduces 3 times out of 5 tries.
