OK, updates to the latest BIOS, CPU microcode revison is now 0x1b
instead of 0x19. ILO2 fw is already the latest.

The NMI-s still happen.

Disabled hpwdt. Now most boots are fine, only one hung with radeon

Vusal patterns also remind me that all the previous hangs were before
radeon mode change - once radeon changes the mode, it already works.
