I tried the latest "fixes" branch of arm-soc.git on OpenBlocks
AX3 (Marvel Armada-XP) and got below kernel panic in boot sequence.
It seems that we have an exception while cpu is in idle.

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000200

And I found that this panic also happened on the latest linus tree.
Git-bisect told me that the 8250 serial driver patch is the first bad

serial: 8250_dw: Don't use UPF_FIXED_TYPE
