Thanks for this. Could you please try the patch below the scissors? Seems fixing
the issue for me.

arm: Fix __arch_get_hw_counter() access to CNTVCT

__arch_get_hw_counter() should check clock_mode to see if it can access
CNTVCT. With the conversion to unified vDSO this check has been left out.

This causes on imx v6 and v7 (imx_v6_v7_defconfig) and other platforms to
hang at boot during the execution of the init process as per below:

[ 19.976852] Run /sbin/init as init process
[ 20.044931] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
exitcode=0x00000004

Fix the problem verifying that clock_mode is set coherently before
accessing CNTVCT.
