Subject: [Regression 5.6-rc1][Bisected b6231ea2b3c6] Powerpc 8xx doesn't boot anymore
Date: Wed, 12 Feb 2020 14:24:36 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Rasmus,

Kernel 5.6-rc1 silently fails on boot.

I bisected the problem to commit b6231ea2b3c6 ("soc: fsl: qe: drop 
broken lazy call of cpm_muram_init()")

I get a bad_page_fault() for an access at address 8 in 
cpm_muram_alloc_common(), called from cpm_uart_console_setup() via 

Reverting the guilty commit on top of 5.6-rc1 is not trivial.

In your commit text you explain that cpm_muram_init() is called via 
subsys_initcall. But console init is done before that, so it cannot work.

Do you have a fix for that ?


NB: Next time, can you please copy powerpc mailing list when changing 
such core parts of powerpc CPUs ?
