You can find a test log at

The scripts to run the test are available at

Bisect points to commit f9aa67142ef26 ("powerpc/64s: Consolidate Alignment 0x600
interrupt"). Bisect log is attached.

Since I don't have the means to run the code on a real system, I have no idea
if the problem is caused by qemu or by the code. It is interesting, though, that
only the 'mac99' tests are affected.

Thanks for the report.

I do test qemu mac99 as part of my CI, and it's booting OK, so there
must be some config difference?

I'm using pmac32_defconfig plus:


And running with:

$ qemu-system-ppc -nographic -vga none -M mac99 -m 1G -kernel vmlinux -initrd $HOME/static/ppc32-initrd.gz -append "console=ttyPZ0 init=/bin/sh"

I am building a 64bit image, and my test runs with qemu-system-ppc64.
My 32bit tests for mac99 are fine as well.
