kernel .config (5.13-rc1, PowerMac G5 11,2)

Got this on my PowerMac G5 11,2 with v5.13-rc1 + few debug options on. The bug was too early for netconsole to kick in so I took a photo and transcribed it.

Comment 1 Erhard F. 2021-05-15 10:20:38 UTC
The bug occurs with DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE=y. When DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE is not set the kernel boots fine.
Comment 2 Christophe Leroy 2021-05-17 06:21:09 UTC
The bug is not in powerpc but in function pmd_basic_tests() in mm/debug_vm_pgtable.c (https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.13-rc1/source/mm/debug_vm_pgtable.c#L146)

pfn_pmd() should not be called before the has_transparent_hugepage() verification.

Same problem in pmd_advanced_tests()

And there is the exact same issue with PUD tests with pfn_pud() function.
Comment 4 Erhard F. 2021-06-04 00:36:48 UTC
I applied the patch on top of 5.13-rc4 but it didn't work out unfortunately.

Still getting the same
