Seems you're experiencing the effects of the infamous IO-APIC problem
('erratum' in Intel-lingo). There's a patch for these problems by Maciej W.
Rozycki, which should (IMnsHO) really be accepted into the main kernel tree
since many people are experiencing these problems and the patch fixes them
quite well.

The patch has been submitted to the list several times now, but I'll do it
again. (attached to this message...)
