Subjectstall/hang on 4.15 kernel with some Xeon skylake CPUs and extended APIC
Hi All,

I've discovered that some new Supermicro skylake systems will hang/stall
while booting the 4.15 kernel when extended APIC (x2apic) is enabled in
the BIOS. The issue happens on specific CPUs only and follows the CPUs.

We had (4) quad socket systems with Xeon 6134 CPUs; 2 out of 4 were
exhibiting this behavior.  We replaced 2 CPUs at that time and the
behavior was eliminated. Those systems were then shipped to our customer
(we are an HPC system integrator).

Now, we have 5 single socket systems with 5122 CPUs.  2 out of the 5 are
hanging.  If we swap the CPUs from the hanging systems with working
systems, the behavior follows the CPU.

I've done a git bisect between 4.14 and 4.15 and found this commit is
triggering the issue:

Some of the commits right before it also seemed to trigger this warning:
[    5.062563] Debug warning: early ioremap leak of 1 areas detected.
               please boot with early_ioremap_debug and report the dmesg.

I have a dmesg log of 1 commit prior to the referenced link with
early_ioremap_debug enabled if it is desired.

The latest git still has the issue.

I've attached a dmesg log captured via serial console from a system
exhibiting this problem.  Here is an excerpt from it where the problems

The NMI dump info repeats periodically after that but never progresses

If any other information is needed, please let me know.  I've reported
this issue to Supermicro already and they believe it is an issue with
the kernel opposed to an issue specific to their systems.  I don't have
any other brand Xeon skylake systems with extended APIC support that I
can try this with.
