  System Hangs With Kernel Migration Processes Consuming 100% CPU

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Once or twice a week, the system becomes non-responsive, with the
  mouse cursor tracking mouse movement but no keyboard response. Until
  today I would resort to using the kernel magic keys to reboot the
  system (R-E-I-S-U-B). Today I remotely logged in from another machine
  on the LAN and discovered that not only was the kernel alive and all
  processes running, but that the "migration/0" and "migration/1"
  processes were consuming 50% of the CPU each, as reported by top(1). I
  suspect this is why the system becomes non-responsive.
