Well, I've taken this as implied from the stack trace (in particular with
two machine_restart() instances on it) plus the "already stopped" in
the title: I don't see why else CPUs may have got stopped.

Indeed, and I thought I too had pointed this out recently (as I
did notice this both here and in the context of the fixup_irqs()
work).  But I can't seem to find any record of it. I guess I had
meant to add this as a post-commit-message remark here, but
then forgot.

Nor could we use smp_call_function() anymore anyway, as it
expects IRQs to be enabled. One question would be whether it
makes sense at all to call e.g. fixup_irqs() when shutting down
from a crash.
