That is documented in Documentation/admin-guide/kdump/kdump.rst.

On arm and ppc64, 'maxcpus=1' is passed for kdump kernel, and "maxcpu=1"
simply keep one of CPU cores as online, and others as offline.

So Cc our arch(arm & ppc64) & kdump guys wrt. passing 'maxcpus=1' for
kdump kernel.

The issue is only triggered for drivers which use managed irq &
multiple hw queues.
