Ok, so we're not missing an "online call" nor a wakeup.

As Julien has identified, we seem to be stuck in a loop.

Now, while staring at the code of that loop, I've seen that pick_cpu()
may mess up with the scratch cpumask for the CPU, which I don't think
is a good thing.

So, can you also try this third debug-patch?
