There was a problem similar to this a few years ago that was tracked
down to improper cache initialization. You might want to check the
boot messages for anything about l2 and/or l3 cache configuration
to see if something looks different. There used to be a way to force
these things, but I'm not sure if that still exists in a modern kernel.
