Please apply

3e80acd1af40 "ACPICA: Fix regression in FADT revision checks"

which is in linus's master to the 3.0.y, 3.2.y, and 3.3.y series to
fix this old boot problem. (Many affected people disabled HT in the
BIOS to work around it in the meantime.)

WZab (cc-ed) has tested that the patch addresses the problem when
applied to the 3.2.y and 3.3.y branches. [1] has details.
