Subject: RE: [PATCH 1/8] perf/x86/intel: Fix memory corruption

kexec was borked in 5.0+ kernel I was using.

Switched to 5.0.3 stable and kexec works as expected.
No warnings seen with a kexec boot.

Attached cpu hotplug test output while perf is running in the background. No WARN messages seen.

When I run the kexec command, it boots to bios. Haven't used kexec before. Still trying to figure that one out.

basically:

 - apply patch
 - start workload with 4 counter (on all CPUs), such that tfa-msr=1
 - try the following:
   o cpu hotplug
   o kexec

to see if the new WARN will trigger -- it should not.
