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);

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

Dropped from my tree for now.
