is allocated in an area of the kernel address space that is backed with 1M
pages. It is nevertheless broken.

I have added
Fixes: 2f859d0dad81 ("s390/smp: reduce size of struct pcpu")                    
Cc: stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx # 4.0+                                               

and will queue the patch for the next pull. Thanks!
