The test failure on dragonboard 410c comes from [1] to fix a possible
deadlock related to the hotplug rework. It's been reverted in v4.12 by
[2] because the cpu hotplug rework was not ready yet at that time. Since
the hotplug rework has not been backported to v4.9.y, the splat cannot
be reproduced and so [1] can be reverted or [2] applied on v4.9.y.
