Hello,

Please, excuse my late answer.

Thank you for testing it.
Indeed, I tested it and I can also reproduce the issue with CPU4. I
will have a look but I suspect it is the same behavior that we have with CPU0.

Indeed. If I have time, I will look at it but I would like to focus on
the CPU0 hotplug.

Okay. Which board are you using? In my case, I did not need
regulators. And, maybe, you investigated on it already?

I will have a look in next weeks on hotplug of CPU0. I guess (and
hope) that it will fix the issue with CPU4.

Thanks,
Best regards,
