No, patching 6d3a1741f1 and d3694d4fa3 doesn't fix the hang.

It hangs in acpi_evaluate_integer() from
59875ae489609b2267548dc85160c5f0f0c6f9d4 "PCI/core: Use PCI Express
Capability accessors" and before
ac212b6980d8d5eda705864fc5a8ecddc6d6eacc "ACPI / processor: Use common
hotplug infrastructure", 3.4~3.11. (double confirmed)

I didn't mention this because:
1, that check is omitted obviously, an API switching patch should not
remove things like that.
2, have run some tests, adding the check back is harmless.
3, I believe ac212b6 just workarounds the hang unexpectedly, bug still
