and building hw_atl/hw_atl_b0.s, it looks like the culprit is this commit:

    net: atlantic: add hwmon getter for MAC temperature

specifically this chunk around line 1634 of hw_atl/hw_atl_b0.c:

+       err = readx_poll_timeout_atomic(hw_atl_b0_ts_ready_and_latch_high_get,
+                                       self, val, val == 1, 10000U, 500000U);

And doing a 'git revert' makes the build work....
