Hi Firoz,

This version(v4) booted fine in IBM Power8 box.
Compiled with 'ppc64le_defconfig' aginst https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/powerpc/linux.git/commit/?h=merge&id=a26b21082959cee3075b3edb7ef23071c7e0b09a

Reference failure v3 version: https://lists.ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc-dev/2018-November/182110.html

Regards,
-Satheesh.
