I think this all started with this happy new year commit..
When I shutdown I get "K99cpuspeed is trying to acquire lock" one (
which I actually think might be cpu(freq) specific since I've only seen
it my lenovo laptop )
( Both have been reported upstream I think and our bugzilla ).
If this was some kind of targeted effort finding these deadlocks, the
kernel guys they would have asked us to throw up a special wiki page and
a tracker bug to keep tap of this stuff sometime in January..
Other than that I think these are slowly being handle on a case by case
Good think for reporters to keep in the back of their head if they are
having trouble seeing the print k message.
echo N > /proc/sys/kernel/printk_delay ( N is 0-10000 in milliseconds ).
Kernel guys can chime what their end game is and what they want to do
