SubjectRe: PPC476 hangs during tlb flush after calling /init in crash kernel with linux 5.4+

Can you bisect to pin point the culprit commit ?

Assuming the problem is in arch/powerpc/ , you should get the result in approx 10 steps:

[root@po15610vm linux-powerpc]# git bisect start -- arch/powerpc/
[root@po15610vm linux-powerpc]# git bisect bad v5.4
[root@po15610vm linux-powerpc]# git bisect good v4.19
Bisecting: 964 revisions left to test after this (roughly 10 steps)
