RU seems the latest. Flashed bios as per your nicely detailed

Err. "300(66)" probably won't help too much. The cpu's are multiplier
locked (love that one, Intel); so will run at 7 * 66 (466) when set to
chip defaults - which I currently am - to rule out flaky / stressed

Temperatures are a nice frosty 30 deg C across all the temperature
sensors lm_sensors offers; and the thermal probe I have dangling in the
psu exhaust :)
[this is with two rc5des clients running - loadavg of 2 - btw]

Back to the original topic, I've done some more 'research'; and I'm not
_certain_ of my findings, but there's a few coincidences here...

I think I'll make a more general post to lkml direct in a minute.
