I got Linus' config to boot. The problem was that I ended up with a
root-owned file (not sure which) in my tree that cause an incorrect
build but didn't generate errors. I don't know how this happened, but
an ill-timed sudo make -j4 modules_install install was probably
involved. git clean -ffxxxd , did *not* fix it or even notice it in
any obvious way.

Anyway, the problem appears to depend on kernel config because it's
dying here on resume on secondary cpus:

VM_BUG_ON(__read_cr3() != (__sme_pa(real_prev->pgd) | prev_asid));

in switch_mm_irqs_off().

What seems to be going on is that the wakeup CPU is exactly restoring
original state. All other CPUs are restoring swapper_pg_dir but are
failing to restore the PCID tag bits, which trips the assertion w.p.
5/6 per non-boot CPU. So, if you have that debug option set, you die
w.p. 1 - (1/6)^(cpus - 1), which is pretty large.

I'll come up with a clean fix this evening, I hope.
