Bug#296623: Acknowledgement (kernel-image-2.6.8-amd64: 2.6.8 kernel images panic on quad Opteron box)

Further information:

The system in question is a Celestica A8440 [1].

If I pass "nomce" to the kernel boot options, to bypass Machine Check
Exceptions, then I can almost get the kernel-image-2.6.8-10-amd64-k8-smp
to a working state. It hangs on loading the "Real Time Clock Driver
v1.12" but I can bypass this with Ctrl-C. It hangs again on "Setting the
System Clock using the Hardware Clock as reference", but again I can
Ctrl-C past this and get to a login prompt.

Unsurprisingly, the machine then hangs on shutdown at "Saving the System
Clock time to the Hardware Clock".
