It would have been useful to specify the tree used. In this case,
this commit comes from linux-next.

Please try to copy the full log as the crash may be a
consequence of another error.

I gave a try and there was a warning ([1]) just before which
lead to the crash afterwards. This is because of the call to
__alloc_percpu in xen_guest_init returns NULL due to:

"illegal size (48) or align (48) for percpu allocation"

I think the best way to fix it is:

diff --git a/arch/arm/xen/enlighten.c b/arch/arm/xen/enlighten.c
index f193414..4986dc0 100644
--- a/arch/arm/xen/enlighten.c
+++ b/arch/arm/xen/enlighten.c
@@ -372,8 +372,7 @@ static int __init xen_guest_init(void)
* for secondary CPUs as they are brought up.
* For uniformity we use VCPUOP_register_vcpu_info even on cpu0.
*/
- xen_vcpu_info = __alloc_percpu(sizeof(struct vcpu_info),
- sizeof(struct vcpu_info));
+ xen_vcpu_info = alloc_percpu(struct vcpu_info);
if (xen_vcpu_info == NULL)
return -ENOMEM;

I will send proper patch later.
Cheers,
