If I recall correctly, 4145f358644b introduced the call to crash_ipi_callback().
After I declared the dummy function for that, I got an error about the missing
crash_send_ipi(). I didn't spend more time on it but just added another dummy
function. It may well be that another problem was introduced in the same time
frame. On the other side, maybe I got it all wrong, and my patch is not worth
the computer it was written on.
