Yes I had checked the part of msm_read which was generating the abort
and it always seems to be in "msm_wait_for_xmitr" at below pointed location.

static inline void msm_wait_for_xmitr(struct uart_port *port)
{
while (!(msm_read(port, UART_SR) & UART_SR_TX_EMPTY)) { <---
if (msm_read(port, UART_ISR) & UART_ISR_TX_READY)
break;
udelay(1);
}
msm_write(port, UART_CR_CMD_RESET_TX_READY, UART_CR);
}

Also I could confirm that this path is entered repeatedly(with tracing
register reads/writes from my patch series in
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/cover/983795/ and tp_printk) and crash
is seen at some random time, so could not get much from this.

I have tried this too, but still the target crashes. So I am doubtful if
this is ftrace issue? Maybe earlycon uart issue as Stephen is suspecting.

Thanks,
Sai
