So latest 4.14.x kernels should work w/o the patch on a rx2800 i2 with

I'm currently running a 4.14.192 kernel with the ptrace patch. While it doesn't
crash, I'm seeing a kworker thread with rather high load.

Do you observe that as well?

I have tried 4.19.137 now with the same configuration and Sergey's ptrace patch
and sure enough it crashes when loading the first modules.

I think this is due to:

rx2800-i2 /usr/src/linux-on-ramdisk # git bisect good
543cea9accd9804307541cb93d3ed7ec94b07237 is the first bad commit

    ia64: use generic swiotlb_ops

    These are identical to the ia64 ops, and would also support CMA
    if enabled on ia64.

The bisecting happened between 4.15.18 ([1]) - which still ran on my
rx2800 i2 - and 4.16-rc1 ([2]) - which crashes it during OS bootup.



Maybe you try to apply Chrisoph Hellwig's patch from [3] (whole thread
on [4])? If it works then, it could to be related.
