[PATCH 0/3] warn and suppress irqflood

I hit a irqflood bug on powerpc platform, and two years ago, on a x86 platform.
When the bug happens, the kernel is totally occupies by irq.  Currently, there
may be nothing or just soft lockup warning showed in console. It is better
to warn users with irq flood info.

In the kdump case, the kernel can move on by suppressing the irq flood.
