Can you test below patch?  Thanks,

Since af3a1f6f4813907e143f87030cde67a9971db533 the Malta code does no
longer probe for presence of GCMP if CMP is not configured.  This means
that the variable gcmp_present well be left at its default value of -1
which normally is meant to indicate that GCMP has not yet been mmapped.
This non-zero value is now interpreted as GCMP being present resulting
in a write attempt to a GCMP register resulting in a crash.
