Hello Mylène,

I've tested your patches and the kernel always locks up when disabling the first
CPU in the second cluster. I can enable/disable other CPUs in the second cluster

Other thing I observed was, that when disabling cores no power is saved (not
even a tiny bit), which is slightly surprising.

From the standpoint of the DT, A83T CPU config seems to lack some cpu
properties, which makes it not claim a cluster clock when I enable any other
CPU than the first CPU in the cluster.

The same goes for cpu-supply regulator. When I dump the state of regulators
after booting with maxcpus=1 and enabling cpu5, the regulator on the second
cluster is not claimed, but when I add cpu-supply property on all cpu# nodes,
I get (when enabling CPU5):

[ 200.072895] CPU5: update cpu_capacity 1024
[ 200.072914] CPU5: thread -1, cpu 1, socket 1, mpidr 80000101
[ 200.151403] cpu cpu5: opp_list_debug_create_link: Failed to create link
[ 200.151411] cpu cpu5: _add_opp_dev: Failed to register opp debugfs (-12)

I'm not having much luck with this. Do you have some suggestions, please?
I'll probably figure out the last issue with the regulators, but I'm at the
loss about the lockup on CPU4 disable.

thaks and regards,
Ondrej Jirman
