Subject[PATCH 4.10 038/167] coresight: fix kernel panic caused by invalid CPU
4.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Wang Nan <>

commit f09444639099584bc4784dfcd85ada67c6f33e0f upstream.

Commit d52c9750f150 ("coresight: reset "enable_sink" flag when need be")
caused a kernel panic because of the using of an invalid value: after
'for_each_cpu(cpu, mask)', value of local variable 'cpu' become invalid,
causes following 'cpu_to_node' access invalid memory area.

This patch brings the deleted 'cpu = cpumask_first(mask)' back.

Panic log:

$ perf record -e cs_etm// ls
