Right, that does look dodgy. And on its own should be fairly straight
forward to cure. But I'd like to understand the rest of it first.

Well, looking at the code, cpu_maps_update_begin() aka.
cpu_add_remove_lock is serializing cpu_up() and cpu_down() and _should_
thereby also serialize cleanup vs the smp_hotplug_thread operations.

Your trace does indeed indicate this is not the case, but I cannot, from
the code, see how this could happen.

Could you use trace_printk() instead and boot with
"trace_options=stacktrace" ?

That's weird, I don't see that on my machines. We very much only bring
up the CPUs _once_. Also note they're 7s apart. Did you do something
funny like resume-from-disk or so?
