Subject: [Bug 216190] 5.19-rc4 kernel + KASAN fails to boot at very early stage when CONFIG_SMP=y is selected (PowerMac G4 3,6)

--- Comment #2 from Christophe Leroy ( ---
Problem is likely due to commit 4291d085b0b0 ("powerpc/32s: Make pte_update()
non atomic on 603 core")

kasan_early_init() calls __set_pte_at(), which calls pte_update() if
CONFIG_SMP, and pte_update() calls mmu_has_feature() since above commit, but
that's too early for calling mmu_has_feature() so mmu_has_feature() tries to
warn using printk(), but that cannot work because the KASAN shadow is not set.

Can you try with the change below ?
