One other point to make is that the message  BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1
stuck for 11s! [stress:4618] is rather alarmist - it makes one think the
CPU is not being used and is stuck. In fact, if one uses the top command
one can see that the CPU is 100% busy running the stress process and not
stuck at all.
