Dave Young suggested to me to explain the problem in more detail,
so here is the revised commit description.  The patch is now in -mm,
so I copied Cc list from -mm version.  Also I added Corey Minyard's

Subject: mips/panic: replace smp_send_stop() with kdump friendly version in 
panic path

This patch fixes the problems reported by Daniel Walker
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/6/24/44).

When kernel panics with crash_kexec_post_notifiers kernel parameter
enabled, other CPUs are stopped by smp_send_stop() instead of
machine_crash_shutdown() in __crash_kexec() path.

  panic()
    if crash_kexec_post_notifiers == 1
      smp_send_stop()
      atomic_notifier_call_chain()
      kmsg_dump()
    __crash_kexec()
      machine_crash_shutdown()
        octeon_generic_shutdown() // shutdown watchdog for ONLINE CPUs

Different from smp_send_stop(), machine_crash_shutdown() stops other
CPUs with extra works for kdump.  So, if smp_send_stop() stops other
CPUs in advance, these extra works won't be done.  As the result,
kdump routines miss to save other CPUs' registers.  Additionally for
MIPS OCTEON, it misses to stop the watchdog timer.

To fix this problem, call a new kdump friendly function,
crash_smp_send_stop(), instead of the smp_send_stop() when
crash_kexec_post_notifiers is enabled.  crash_smp_send_stop() is a
weak function, and it just call smp_send_stop().  Architecture
codes should override it so that kdump can work appropriately.
This patch provides MIPS version.

Fixes: f06e5153f4ae (kernel/panic.c: add "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" option)
