:though.  If you have no other symptoms, then it's definitely harmless.  :)

    It's a problem if it keeps repeating forever... it means a cpu has
    gotten stuck in a live loop.  If it does not repeat forever then it's
    probably ok and only merely disturbing that a cpu got stuck that long
    in kernel mode before being able to respond to the IPI.
