I've seen similar soft lockup traces from the sys_unshare path when running my
fuzz tester.  It seems that if you create enough network namespaces,
it can take a huge amount of time for them to be iterated.
(Running trinity with '-c unshare' you can see the slow down happen. In
 some cases, it takes so long that the watchdog process kills it --
 though the SIGKILL won't get delivered until the unshare() completes)

Any idea what this machine had been doing prior to this that may have
involved creating lots of namespaces ?
