Hi all,

I'm again bringing up the network on my simulator, and I've found that if I 
run with more than one CPU in my simulation (if I have CONFIG_SMP enabled), 
synchronize_rcu() just hangs, as I never get a cpu_quiet() call.

I've attached boot log chunks from various parts of boot time to the bottom of 
this mail. I'm curious as to whether the fault is in my emulator, or in the 
kernel, or in my additions to the kernel... On IRC, Ralf initially suggested 
that it could be an emulator fault, but I'm not sure where such a fault would 
be.

Thanks,
joshua

Here is how a good boot looks:

However, a failing boot looks like this:
