So, I'm being very doubtful now actually.

First of all, I realize my patch only fixes things halfway. Only softirq raised from
hardirqs are going to be handled after ksoftirqd is parked. If it's raised outside
interrupts, the softirq is going to be ignored. If other smpboot kthreads, following
ksoftirqd parking, raise softirqs from their park() callback we should at least warn
that we are ignoring that.

Also, I'm still not sure if you're running threaded IRQs. Very likely not as
the softirqs in your traces are executed in idle, which means from an IRQ interrupting
idle. You haven't passed "threadirqs" in your kernel parameters, right?
In any case we need to figure out why your softirqs raised at 1479.112930 and
1479.112935 don't get handled.

Finally I don't understand why you have so many timer softirqs and yet no timer traces
at all, I turned them on in the script I gave you. So something weird is happening with
the timers code. At best we are wasting lots of CPU cycles with those empty softirqs, at
worst we are miscalculating some expiration somewhere, possibly ignoring a timer.

So I'll need to cook up an updated debug patch for you to trigger if you don't
mind.

Thanks.
