There have been quite a few fixes to issues with callback offloading and
NO_HZ_FULL since 3.10. I don't know which of these have been applied
to CentOS. But yes, there have been some fixes for issues where an
rcuo kthread would fail to wake up, and I have no idea whether or not
the CentOS people took those fixes.

The reason I pointed you at commit b58cc46c5f6b is that it avoids the
problem, at least in some cases. Though I would be surprised if
that fix was not pulled into CentOS, given that a number of Red Hat
people attended this talk:

https://lwn.net/Articles/629742/

This talk has a list of commits that related to NO_HZ_FULL and callback
offloading.

Again, my recommendations are:

1. For CentOS issues, talk to CentOS people.

2. To avoid your problems with callback offloading and NO_HZ_FULL,
build your kernel with CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=n. Given that you
are doing cloud computing, this should work fine for your users.

Alternatively, you could compare the code in CentOS with current mainline
and then use "git blame" in order to identify fixes, but it is going to
be -way- easier to simply rebuild your kernel with CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=n.

Adding LKML on CC so that others who might be having the same problem
can find this.

Thanx, Paul
