SubjectRe: "hde: timeout waiting for DMA": message gone, same behaviour
I had the pleasure of a visit from the DMA fairy before. I found two

2) Are you using APIC? try booting "noapic" and see how it goes

[1] The good old ham radio method of fixing a radio. Poke around with
a screwdriver, pushing the bits (these was in the days of valves and
around until at some point, touching some object, the problem (whistle,
noise, cracking) stops. Solder the screwdriver to that object.
