Neither of those sites should use DBG(), that's not really early boot
code, they should just use pr_warn().

And the other uses of DBG() in initialize_cache_info() should just be

In smp_release_cpus() the entry/exit DBG's should just be removed, and
the spinning_secondaries line should just be pr_debug().

That would just leave the two calls in early_setup(). If we taught
udbg_printf() to return early when udbg_putc is NULL, then we could just
call udbg_printf() unconditionally and get rid of the DBG macro entirely.
