it's preemption mode related ,

on the 3.0.30-rt50, only config kernel with highest preemption level (Fully Preemptible Kernel (RT)) in cpu preemption model
will cause problem

and even i use the "Preemptible Kernel" or "Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop)" the problem would not happen..

> I looked through the logs but the only worker depletion related patches which pop up are around CPU hotplugs, so I don't think they apply here. If the problem is relatively easy to reproduce && you can't move onto a newer kernel, I'm afraid bisection probably is the best option. Thanks!
