While stopping virtual machine the soft lockup of the guest OS is observed with code RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff810c64ef>]  [<ffffffff810c64ef>] stop_machine_cpu_stop+0x6f/0xe0.


The issue could be observed in all distributions with kernels based on mainline kernels up to 2.6.37.
In CentOS\RHEL distributions it is tracked in Red Hat kernel bug #855840, which is supposedly fixed in RHEL 6.4 onward.
NOTE: The issue occurs rarely on the late stages of the system shutdown, thus there is no data loss expected.
