Yes tracing does cause issue but only if earlycon is present. If I
disable earlycon, then even tracing wont cause any issue and target
boots fine.

Tracing msm_read does cause the crash, but that is not the only one
causing the crash because even after "ftrace_notrace=msm_read" the board
crashes which is why I suspect msm earlycon and not ftrace.
