I think this is almost certainly the cause too. The symptoms of this
issue are exactly the same as the early boot hang once discussed in a
thread titled "Dynamic nop selection breaks boot on Geode LX" (which
you wrote to as well) which was a problem of running code before
having exception tables set up.

I haven't yet run your tests except for "rdmsr 0x8b" which returns
"pread: Input/output error" - let me know if you would still like
results from the other tests.
