For openrisc,

I reproduced this. It seems the fix is a patch you have already posted
for doing `#define __ro_after_init __read_mostly`. Bisected to commit d2ec3f77de8e ("pty: make ptmx file ops read-only
after init").

That patch has not made into into the 4.9 tree it seems. Do you have
a place you can get it in?

If Andrew doesn't pick it up, I'll send it to Linus myself
later in the release cycle.


The build errors are all due to
ERROR: "irq_set_parent" [drivers/mfd/tps65217.ko] undefined!
Proposed fixes: [1] [2]

The qemu/mips failures are fixed with [3], [4].
The openrisc qemu failure is fixed with [5].
