I agree. But however, on this platform, forcing a cpu microcode upgrade
after upgrading kernel does not seem like a good solution to users.
Thus I still like to dig into the problem further to see if we can
workaround this "regression" in software.
As the kernel freezes at a very early stage, do you have any advice on
how to narrow down the problem?
