ARM: 7414/1: SMP: prevent use of the console when using idmap_pgd
Commit 4e8ee7de227e3ab9a72040b448ad728c5428a042 (ARM: SMP: use idmap_pgd for mapping MMU enable during secondary booting) switched secondary boot to use idmap_pgd, which is initialized during early_initcall, instead of a page table initialized during __cpu_up. This causes idmap_pgd to contain the static mappings but be missing all dynamic mappings. If a console is registered that creates a dynamic mapping, the printk in secondary_start_kernel will trigger a data abort on the missing mapping before the exception handlers have been initialized, leading to a hang. Initial boot is not affected because no consoles have been registered, and resume is usually not affected because the offending console is suspended. Onlining a cpu with hotplug triggers the problem. A workaround is to the printk in secondary_start_kernel until after the page tables have been switched back to init_mm.
