SubjectHang while booting 4.15.7
We have some Dell servers running Intel Gold 6126 processors. Some of 
them hang on boot under 4.15.7,  but work fine on 4.14.14.  When they
hang, we see the following on console:

Error parsing PCC subspaces from PCCT
watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU #16 stuck for 23s! [swapper/0:1]

We see that PCC subspaces error under 4.14 as well, but it doesn't cause
the machine to hang.

So far we haven't been able to correlate these hangs with anything in
particular.  Some machines will hang, some machines will boot.  They're
otherwise identical as far as hardware and firmware goes.

I've tried pcie_aspm=off, since that seems to be the next bit of code
that's being executed.  This resulted in the machine booting a little
further, but then oopsing somewhere in acpi_os_purge_cache. I'm not able
to get a full trace there, as I don't have serial access easily available.

Any suggestions?
