That is something :)

there! vmware bug. It probably worked by chance.

because cpu 2 and 3 share the same package and if your printk is at the
bottom of the function, it will return early.

yes. The topology field is u16.

I assume "init_rapl_pmus: maxpkg 4" is from init_rapl_pmus() returning
topology_max_packages(). So it says 4 but then returns 65535 for CPU 2
and 3. That -1 comes probably from topology_update_package_map(). Could
you please send a complete boot log and try the following patch? This
one should fix your boot problem and disable RAPL if the info is
invalid.
