To paraphrase, the chassis codes mean:
o Someone accessed an address that didn't respond.
o CPU timed out the transaction.
o HPMC == High Priority machince Check. Try "ser pim" at
  the firmware prompt to see which address it tried to reference.

An HPMC means the box is dead from an OS point of view.
We can't access the IO subsystem after an HPMC and the
OS gets control but only attempts dump a tombstone to the
console (which might fail too).

Can you clarify what you mean by "clean shutdown"?
