A five hours test run with the stress-ng tool worked fine for this
patchset for me.

stress-ng command:
$ stress-ng -v --sequential 0 -t 120s --exclude sysfs,opcode --metrics

Logfile (6.3MB):

Tested device:
- Odroid C1+

Tested OS:
- Debian stable (stress-ng 0.07.16)

Tested kernel: v4.14-rc1 plus this patchset plus:
- "ARM: dts: meson: fixing USB support on Meson6, Meson8 and Meson8b"
- "ARM: dts: meson: enabling the USB Host controller on Odroid-C1/C1+ board"
- "[RFC] ARM: dts: meson8b: add reserved memory zones"

Tested kernel config:
- multi_v7_defconfig, except CONFIG_DRM_TEGRA=n (build error otherwise)

I had to exclude the sysfs and opcode tests though. The former
created an unhandled kernel paging request. And the latter a
silent freeze after some seconds.

Those two issues seem unrelated to this patchset though,
