I filed a PR for this (18676).  On my system, using a Uniprocessor
kernel solved the problem (albeit at the expense of one CPU!).
The whole MP IRQ handling seems a little..broken.  I had a few
system hangs when using both CPUs on the system and lots of
device IO, and of course there's the whole "can't share IRQ's
at different levels" issue (which is annoying, as it means there's technically
no way to get the 3 cards in my system I, USB, and sound).

Try w/o MULTIPROCESSOR (and maybe ioapic) to see if that helps.
