The patch you linked worked for me, given the below patch for arm64 to
make use of static_branch_enable_cpuslocked().

Catalin/Will, are you happy for this to go via the tip tree with the
other hotplug locking changes?

Thanks,
Mark.

Subject: [PATCH] arm64: cpufeature: use static_branch_enable_cpuslocked()

Recently, the hotplug locking was conveted to use a percpu rwsem. Unlike
the existing {get,put}_online_cpus() logic, this can't nest.
Unfortunately, in arm64's secondary boot path we can end up nesting via
static_branch_enable() in cpus_set_cap() when we detect an erratum.

This leads to a stream of messages as below, where the secondary
attempts to schedule befroe it has been fully onlined. As the CPU
orchsetrating the onlining holds the rswem, this hangs the system.

We only call cpus_set_cap() in the secondary boot path, where we know
that the rwsem is held by the thread orchestrating the onlining. Thus,
we can use the new static_branch_enable_cpuslocked() in cpus_set_cap(),
avoiding the above.
