Sorry i have been pulled away on something else...
With CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU enabled, the problem code would not get
compiled, thus i was able to create a kernel rpm. Unfortunately
i failed to boot the sn2 kernel...

So i switched to my reference box, an ia64 HP zx box. It booted
up OK (tiger defconfig). Then i got stuck on a stupid quesiton:
I was not able to run the 'kexec' command to load the kernel
specified in the '-p' parameter. What kernel was i supposed
to specify there? The one i built? Or, a reqular kernel that
proves to work?
