    The patch is totally broken and causes crash even under light load
    (just found it after a lengthy binary search)

    The original code does

    /* Copy section for each CPU (we discard the original) */
    size = ALIGN(__per_cpu_end - __per_cpu_start, SMP_CACHE_BYTES);
    if (size < PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM)

    perhaps end-start is larger than PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM ? (using defconfig)

    Dropped from my tree for now.
