[PATCH] x86/mce/therm_throt: Fix the access of uninitialized therm_work

From: Chuansheng Liu
Date: Mon Jan 06 2020 - 01:45:27 EST

In ICL platform, it is easy to hit bootup failure with panic
in thermal interrupt handler during early bootup stage.

Such issue makes my platform almost can not boot up with
latest kernel code.

The call stack is like:
kernel BUG at kernel/timer/timer.c:1152!

Call Trace:

When one CPU is up, the irq is enabled prior to CPU UP
notification which will then initialize therm_worker.
Such race will cause the posssibility that interrupt
handler therm_throt_process() accesses uninitialized
therm_work, then system hit panic at very early bootup

In my ICL platform, it can be reproduced in several times
of reboot stress. With this fix, the system keeps alive
for more than 200 times of reboot stress.
