Comment 2 Erhard F. 2020-08-31 20:09:00 UTC
No change with 5.9-rc3.
Comment 3 Christophe Leroy 2020-09-01 05:04:10 UTC
Did you try without CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE ?

If you want CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE, the following series aims at fixing it for PPC64: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linuxppc-dev/list/?series=197961

Without CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE the G5 boots fine. Thanks!

Did not check the series as current ozlabs patches indicate that the CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE option is removed for the time being.
