SubjectRe: mmiotracer hangs the system
this is odd, I found a bug related to nouveau (modprobe/bind doesn't
return), but that isn't related to your issue at all or maybe it is
exactly this, cause the binding of the device doesn't return and
depending on the kind of driver, it would hang the system... yeah,
maybe it is the same issue.

anyway, could you try to trace with the attached patch? Maybe the
additional output would help me to verify it. Currently I am working
on the bugfix I mentioned above and this may also fix your issue. I
was still able to get a working mmiotrace file, even if the dvice
binding didn't finish. Is this the same for you? (try cat
"/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_pipe > some_file"; and see if this
contains anything usefull).

This really looks like an odd issue, because the mmiotracer still
behaves as expected.
