The testing was with Qemu. And we found that the hang is related with
clang-14.

The original report showed the kernel is built with clang-14:
# build kernel
cd linux
cp config-5.16.0-rc3-00003-gf154f290855b .config
make HOSTCC=clang-14 CC=clang-14 ARCH=x86_64 olddefconfig prepare modules_prepare bzImage modules
make HOSTCC=clang-14 CC=clang-14 ARCH=x86_64 INSTALL_MOD_PATH=<mod-install-dir> modules_install


And the clang-14 generate different code comparing to clang-11. I pasted
the native_write_cr4 assembly code generated with clang-14 and clang-11 to:
https://zerobin.net/?ced930258536c677#U6et+H97oxbpdYclFvAX0F3ha0rCJctLE53mJjDKrgo=

The extra code generated by clang-14 is like:

ffffffff810b8784: 48 89 d8 mov %rbx,%rax
ffffffff810b8787: 48 c1 e8 03 shr $0x3,%rax
ffffffff810b878b: 48 b9 00 00 00 00 00 movabs $0xdffffc0000000000,%rcx
ffffffff810b8792: fc ff df
ffffffff810b8795: 80 3c 08 00 cmpb $0x0,(%rax,%rcx,1)
--> Qemu reboot after this instruction from x86_64_start_kernel
ffffffff810b8799: 74 08 je ffffffff810b87a3 <native_write_cr4+0x84>
ffffffff810b879b: 48 89 df mov %rbx,%rdi
ffffffff810b879e: e8 cc 7c 64 00 callq ffffffff8170046f <__asan_report_load8_noabort>
ffffffff810b87a3: 48 ff 03 incq (%rbx)
ffffffff810b87a6: 5b pop %rbx


Looks like KASAN related stub generated by clang-14 (KASAN_SHADOW_OFFSET and asan_report).
This function is early function called before kasan_init.

Looks like we need to disable KASAN_SANITIZE for arch/x86/kernel/cpu/common.c. So clang-14 will
be happy with this kind of early TLB flush? Thanks.
