Not got any feedback on the smpboot changes from the RISC-V side.
I tested it on polarfire, the d1 (with both SMP & !SMP set iirc)
& on the u540. It all looked good to me.

I'd like to have this fixed for v5.20, but there isn't too much
time left before the mw. Not too sure about the cross-tree changes,
does it need an immutable branch or could it go through driver-core?
Catalin suggested removing the CC stable from patch 1/2 & adding it
as a dependency for the 2/2 patch - but obviously that's up to the
committer to sort out.

I guess since it is a fix, it could also go into rc1<
