SubjectPPC476 hangs during tlb flush after calling /init in crash kernel with linux 5.4+
Hi all,

I'm having a problem in simulation and hardware where my PPC476
processor stops executing instructions after callling /init. In my case
this is a bash script. The code descends to flush the TLB, and
somewhere in the loop in _tlbil_pid, the PC goes to
InstructionTLBError47x but does not go any further. This only occurs in
the crash kernel environment, which is using the same kernel,
initramfs, and init script as the main kernel, which executed fine. I
do not see this problem with linux 4.19 or 3.10. I do see it with 5.4
and 5.10. I see a fair amount of refactoring in the PPC memory
management area between 4.19 and 5.4. Can anyone point me in a
direction to debug this further? My stack trace is below as I can run
gdb in simulation.
