I have a power6 blade [IBM,7998-61X] running 2.6.31-rc5-git2
kernel (a33a052f19a21d727847391c8c1aff3fb221c472). After some
period of inactivity the machine drops into xmon with following

This is a 8 cpu system. Other cpu's are in idle state. Last
vanilla kernel that worked fine was 2.6.31-rc4-git2

dmesg log and .config attached.
