note that debian's kernel has a workaround for this as of 2.6.32-36

  http://bugs.debian.org/636797

http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/l/linux-2.6/linux-2.6_2.6.32-41/changelog#version2.6.32-36

  * sched: Work around sched_group::cpu_power == 0 (Ameliorates: #636797)


Note that what appears to be the same bug is also reported upstream as:
