I tried to prepare next 4.4-rt release. I have code ready, but while
running tests I realized that only two targets are used to run them.
We 4.19-rt has known bugs breaking boot on de0-nano (and probably
other) boards, and according to code inspection, same bug is present
in 4.4-rt. Fix is not complex, but I'm not comfortable applying it
without _any_ testing.
If I'm right, 4.4-rt should be broken on socfpga boards (arm32) in
non-realtime configuration; it should panic on boot in cca 50% of
cases. Patch below should fix it.
And I pushed code _without_ the patch to kernel.org,
