Subject[PATCH 4.14 107/205] percpu: convert spin_lock_irq to spin_lock_irqsave.
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 6ab7d47bcbf0144a8cb81536c2cead4cde18acfe ]

>From Michael Cree:
"Bisection lead to commit b38d08f3181c ("percpu: restructure
locking") as being the cause of lockups at initial boot on
the kernel built for generic Alpha.

On a suggestion by Tejun Heo that:

So, the only thing I can think of is that it's calling
spin_unlock_irq() while irq handling isn't set up yet.
Can you please try the followings?

1. Convert all spin_[un]lock_irq() to
spin_lock_irqsave/unlock_irqrestore()."

Fixes: b38d08f3181c ("percpu: restructure locking")
