Re: kern/40505: delay(9) is a MD non-interface

For sys/kern/subr_prf.c:vpanic(), whose DELAY() is "I have nothing to

cpu_idle() is not a MI function interface, from cpu.h:
For that particular DELAY(), it might as well be "continue".
But to answer your question anyway: you can't meaningfully, rump kernels
do not schedule threads onto cores (they run on threads which schedule
cores), so "core is idle" does not make sense.
If you really have a strong use case for not spinning before reboot in
case >1 cores panic, from the rump kernel perspective it is best to
define a true interface, e.g. cpu_panicwait(), and call cpu_idle() in
the kern_cpu.c implementation and sleep in a rump kernel.
