RE: [Xen-devel] BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0! on 3.0.2-2

It's hard to tell for sure, but this doesn't look to me like a xen
issue. It may be possible to repro on an equivalent native kernel.
Was the guest still pingable or did it crash?


completely unpingable. console was also dead, nobody tried the xen console. (I just setup a better reboot procedure for my hosting company; I need to setup something similar here so that we don't loose the data we need to figure this out.)

Where should I start looking to find out exactly what "bug: soft lockup on cpu0" means? linux source/docs? or Xen source/docs?
