The one above in the thread which replaces powerpc_local_irq_pmu_save()
raw_powerpc_local_irq_pmu_save()? It did not compile as there is no
raw_powerpc_local_irq_pmu_save() so I may be missing something here.

I applied the patch on top of the current upstream and replaced
raw_powerpc_local_irq_pmu_save() with raw_local_irq_pmu_save() (which I
think was the intention) but I still see the issue.

The upstream 18445bf405cb (13 hours old) also shows the problem. Yours
1/2 still fixes it.
