Isolated down to CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG=y being the line which somehow "fixes"
the crash. I can enable all the above apart from that and we can reproduce
it.

Also, I changed gatesgarth to use qemu 5.2.0 copied in from hardknott and that
breaks it. Dropping the 27 CVE patches "fixes" it again. It is possible it
is one of the CVE fixes. Continuing to try and isolate.
For the mail archive trail, and for those not follwing the ongoing
research on IRC, we are hopeful that this fixes it.

Awesome work in tracking that down, much appreciated, thanks!

Curious what upstream will make of it now...

Cheers,

Richard
