    Hi Joe,
    enabling the dma mode has resolved the "Losing too many ticks" thing, now the
    system seems running fine, the unique strange thing is the "Unknown HZ value!
    (92) Assume 100." message, that appears before the output of any program launched.

    Thanks everyone for the support.
