Does booting with "nolapic" help on all of the affected systems?

Also, does disabling the CPUidle during boot help?

Finally, is the problem reproducible with CONFIG_NO_HZ unset?

Well on two machines, nolapic cures the boot hang and on one machine it cures the random shutdown hangs.

I'll compile a kernel with CONFIG_NO_HZ to see what happens but how do I disable cpuidle during boot? I've checked the kernel-parameters.txt but there's no cpuidle related boot parameter there.
