Subject[linux41] regression with 'x86/cacheinfo: Move cacheinfo sysfs code to generic infrastructure' on AMD i686
From
Date
Hi Guenter, Sudeep,

It now came down to 'x86/cacheinfo: Move cacheinfo sysfs code to generic
infrastructure'[1] as you can see here[2].

The facts are:

- You can't boot on i686 only with more than one CPU core on AMD
hardware (x86_64 however works)
- Using Ubuntu config[3] it boots but creates an kernel >= 1 GB in size
on Manjaro
- By reverting 0d55ba4[4] the kernel boots.

So we have to find out what is causing this issue[5].

kind regards
Philip Müller
