I can imagine... Will do my best to help, but I don't know anything
about hpet. :(

Okay, and thanks for the others explanations.

| Can you please disable CONFIG_HPET ?

It still hangs but at a different point, the last two messages are:

"""
PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
DMAR:parse DMAR table failure.
"""

Also, after about 10 minutes I get the same backtrace as reported in
the ticket above... It's the same bug then.
