I reported a problem with the AMD initialization just last week.
There is an issue with amd_pmu_cpu_online() which gets called
too early, and thus fails. That leaves some bogus state and causes
a crash in amd_pmu_cpu_offline().

I proposed a fix which was rejected. The alternative involves moving
some the of CPU initialization code (on AMD) to an earlier position,i.e.,
which would be executed before the CPU_STARTED notifier. Nobody
has proposed anything else so far.
