I have patches to address this:

We need CPUHP_AP_PERF_ARM_ACPI_STARTING to happen before
CPUHP_AP_PERF_ARM_STARTING, and I think this re-ordering prevents us
from correctly resetting the PMU and enabling percpu interrupts, at
least in heterogeneous configurations (e.g. big.LITTLE systems like
Juno).

I'm not sure whether we could safely move both callbacks this late.

Thanks,
Mark.
