Same on my Phenom x 4 ASUS board. With hw.madt_probe_test=1 it started
to boot, but the boot was very slow and sluggish. After it completed to
boot, and I ran a few programs, it somehow deadlocked without giving any
message on the console.

There are some more patches by Sephe which I'll apply to x86_64.
