I tried with newer kernel.

unexpected machine check:

    mces    = 0x1
    vector  = 0x670
    param   = 0xfffffc0000006060
    pc      = 0xfffffc00003002d8
    ra      = 0xfffffc00003003e0
    code    = 0x98
    curproc = 0xfffffc000703e2f0
        pid = 485, comm = skkdic-sort

So the check is reporting...

> 0x98  Processor Detected Hard error 

Hmm, what is detected?

The logout frame seems similar to the ev5 one.
Okay, I'll try and write some code in the weekend.
