4.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Anju T Sudhakar <a...@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
[ Upstream commit ad2b6e01024ef23bddc3ce0bcb115ecd8c520b7e ]
Oops is observed during boot:
Faulting instruction address: 0xc000000000248340
cpu 0x0: Vector: 380 (Data Access Out of Range) at [c000000ff66fb850]
pc: c000000000248340: event_function_call+0x50/0x1f0
lr: c00000000024878c: perf_remove_from_context+0x3c/0x100
pid = 14, comm = cpuhp/0
While registering the cpuhotplug callbacks for nest-imc, if we fail in
the cpuhotplug online path for any random node in a multi node
system (because the opal call to stop nest-imc counters fails for that
node), ppc_nest_imc_cpu_offline() will get invoked for other nodes who
successfully returned from cpuhotplug online path.
This call trace is generated since in the ppc_nest_imc_cpu_offline()
path we are trying to migrate the event context, when nest-imc
counters are not even initialized.
Patch to add a check to ensure that nest-imc is registered before
migrating the event context.
