I'm not convinced that the original report wasn't hardware related.
We had taken a machine check exception already, which shows that something
isn't quite right. MCEs happening under high load are usually a sign
of thermal/power problems of some sort.
Oleg's comments may still hold true, independant of the report.
I've added Venki to the Cc: as he's recently rewritten considerable
amounts of the ondemand governor (though the workqueue mechanics
are pretty much the same).
