I thought that was true on all arches due to initmem, but seems not.

I guess we have the same problem as s390 and we need to define
arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed().

Qian, can you try this:

diff --git a/arch/powerpc/include/asm/sections.h b/arch/powerpc/include/asm/sections.h
index 4a1664a8658d..616b1b7b7e52 100644
--- a/arch/powerpc/include/asm/sections.h
+++ b/arch/powerpc/include/asm/sections.h
@@ -5,8 +5,22 @@

#include <linux/elf.h>
#include <linux/uaccess.h>
+
+#define arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed
+
#include <asm-generic/sections.h>

+extern bool init_mem_is_free;
+
+static inline int arch_is_kernel_initmem_freed(unsigned long addr)
+{
+ if (!init_mem_is_free)
+ return 0;
+
+ return addr >= (unsigned long)__init_begin &&
+ addr < (unsigned long)__init_end;
+}
+
extern char __head_end[];

#ifdef __powerpc64__

cheers
