Eeek. We fixed this in mainline via:

commit f79e0258ea1f04d63db499479b5fb855dff6dbc5
Author: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@xxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Fri Sep 11 15:33:05 2009 +0200

clocksource: Resolve cpu hotplug dead lock with TSC unstable, fix crash


commit 54a6bc0b071c50150bc6d1da16c2cd9a963e288c
Author: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Mon Sep 14 19:49:02 2009 +0200

clocksource: Delay clocksource down rating to late boot

These patches came via the tip tree right at the beginning of the
