Looks like these are all Intel machines. Do they use intel_idle for the
CPU powersaving features?
(cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuidle/current_driver)

If yes - does booting with intel_idle.max_cstate=0 or
intel_idle.max_cstate=3 boot parameter help?

It could be related to https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21952
somehow, which seems to be an 2.6.35 regression.
