Hi, Bjorn,

Not sure if you have access to Red Hat Bugzilla, but I filed:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1774802

When I hit this issue.

Some context:

The problem for me hits itermittently during shutdown of the kdump kernel.
During this time, the SUT sometimes gets a PCI error that raises an NMI.

The reaction to the NMI that the kdump kernel takes is problematic.
Sometimes the system prints the tombstones and resets through firmware
without problems. Other times it takes a second NMI and hangs.

I'll note that the kdump initrd doesn't contain the NIC drivers. When
these are added, we don't see the issue.
