you need to disable nmi_watchdog (by putting nmi_watchdog=0)
the code is just broken in recent kernels :(
(there's people in my team at Intel working on fixing this)
Dave: please disable nmi_watchdog by default in FC x86-64 kernels.. at
least until the worst bugs are fixed (but even then it makes little
sense to have it enabled anyway)
x86-64 has had it default on for ages though, it's only recently
that i386 changed to match. It's odd that it's only now causing problems.
