[Linux] What does the kernel message "soft lockup" mean?

The kernel detects when there is too much time gone between two timer ticks. This easily happens, if the system is halted with the debugger. Please switch off the soft lockup detection by disabling CONFIG_DETECT_SOFTLOCKUP in the kernel configuration.
