So I tried the series, and this patch causes a silent hard hang on bootup, with no
(early-)console messages visible.

I've attached the config that triggers the problem, built with:

gcc version 5.3.1 20160406 (Red Hat 5.3.1-6) (GCC)

it's 100% reproducible on both Intel and AMD test systems.

I'll continue to test the series with this patch left out.

So both the xtensa build failure and this boot failure needs to be fixed before I
can apply this series.

Thanks,

Ingo
