Subject: Spinlock debugging in the kernel

Please excuse me if this is a wrong group.
Please find the log of a system that I am trying to debug.

It is a "soft lockup" issue and the root cause seems to be coming from
the mm unit of the kernel.
I am relatively new to kernel and arm64 platforms.

How do you typically decipher a locking issue like this? Any ideas/
pointers that I can run with will greatly help.
