Sounds very similar to the problem I fixed with the led tasklet

        /* Only schedule the led tasklet on cpu 0, and only if it
         * is enabled.
        if (cpu == 0 && !atomic_read(&led_tasklet.count))

where I added the atomic_read() call.  In that case it wasn't hanging
my (UP) machine, but it left ksoftirqd_CPU0 at 100% CPU.
