That could be one plausible explanation. Look at what calls
__sw_hweight64:

initmem_init
numa_policy_init
page_writeback_init
paging_init
pcpu_embed_first_chunk
pcpu_setup_first_chunk
sched_init
set_rq_online.part.46
setup_arch
setup_per_cpu_areas
update_sysctl
x86_64_start_kernel
x86_64_start_reservations
x86_numa_init
zone_sizes_init

I could very well imagine per CPU areas or some sched structure or
whatever getting silently corrupted.

Thanks.
