Good, then the hang should be caused by:

Store (Arg0, HCSL)
Store (ShiftLeft (Arg1, 0x01), HMAD)
Store (Arg2, HMCM)
Store (0x0B, HMPR)

Could you add this at the beginning of this block:
Store (Arg0, Debug)
And add this at the end of this block:
Store( HMPR, Debug)

Also change boot option: acpi_debug_layer=0x00100010,
Let me verify if ec access is just ok.

Probably yes.

Yes, that's good idea to have separate i2rb copy for THM0 which we are
