Hmm. The "Code: " line is just full of complete garbage, so I think
the real issue is that you really are trying to execute data.

And that in turn seems to be because "setup_disablecpuid()" has
actually been free'd, because it is marked as __init.

Which is fine at the initial bootup, but not so fine at resume time,
since it was free'd long long ago by then.

And it definitely shouldn' t be called at resume time. There's
something wrong there. That call trace is odd:

Call Trace:
[<ffffffff8148a119>] ? identify_cpu+0xd8/0x2d8
[<ffffffff8148a32d>] identify_secondary_cpu+0x14/0x1b
[<ffffffff8148bf0f>] smp_store_cpu_info+0x3c/0x3e
[<ffffffff8148c2ef>] start_secondary+0xf7/0x1d2

because none of those should be calling "setup_disablecpuid()" at all.

Hmm. In fact, RIP is "setup_disablecpuid+0x40/0x40", ie it is one past
the _end_ of setup_disablecpuid.

I suspect that is actually "setup_smep()" that got called, an dthat
there was some garbage data in there that caused it to jump back a

Does the attached patch fix it?

Hmm. I have no idea about this one. Dmitry?
