The stable list isn't about helping diagnose such issues. Also, you seem
to be using a vendor-specific kernel, so nobody working on the official
kernel will be able to help you. You need to contact your vendor to get
support on this. Maybe they'll indicate you that a recent mainline kernel
supports their CPU well, and even then it can depend on your board. Last
point, 3.5.0 is quite outdated and unsupported. It lacks many bugfixes
and important security fixes, so you should not run that anyway. Keep in
mind that many vendor-specific kernels don't include fixes from mainline
and based on that, you should always select your hardware based on its
support in mainline instead of chosing the kernel based on the hardware.
