Subject: [PATCH 1/3] coresight: fix kernel panic caused by invalid CPU

From: Wang Nan <>

Commit d52c9750f150 ("coresight: reset "enable_sink" flag when need be")
caused a kernel panic because of the using of an invalid value: after
'for_each_cpu(cpu, mask)', value of local variable 'cpu' become invalid,
causes following 'cpu_to_node' access invalid memory area.

This patch brings the deleted 'cpu = cpumask_first(mask)' back.

Panic log:

 $ perf record -e cs_etm// ls
