Notice in this instance the expired callouts were queued for CPU2.

Looking at CPU2 we see that it is running its idle() thread:

CAT(vmcore.0/10V)> cpu 2
CPU thread pri PID cmd
2 @ 0x30007d8a000 0x2a1003a5c80 -1 sched(unix:idle) (idle)

We also see that CPU2 has a base SPL of 0 :

CAT(vmcore.0/10V)> sdump 0x30007d8a000 cpu cpu_base_spl
int cpu_base_spl = 0
