Regression causes a hang on boot with a Comtrol PCI card




Two regressions cause Linux to hang on boot when a Comtrol PCI card is present.

If I revert the following two commits, I can boot again and the card operates
without issue:

1302fcf0d03e (refs/bisect/bad) PCI: Configure *all* devices, not just
hot-added ones
1c3c5eab1715 sched/core: Enable might_sleep() and smp_processor_id()
checks early

; lspci -vs 82:00.0
82:00.0 Multiport serial controller: Comtrol Corporation Device 0061
        Subsystem: Comtrol Corporation Device 0061
        Flags: 66MHz, medium devsel, IRQ 35, NUMA node 1
        Memory at c8004000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
        Memory at c8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [40] Hot-plug capable
        Capabilities: [48] Power Management version 2
        Kernel driver in use: rp2
        Kernel modules: rp2

Is it possible that the problem is that the card claims to support Hot-plug,
but does not?

I would love to help fix this issue, please let me know what other information
would be helpful to provide.
