[Bug 235753] System hang

I can verify this happens with both Nvidia proprietary drivers versions:
169.12+2.6,24,13-19.42 driver in Hardy Heron and 173.14.05 (from
Nvidia's site)

I am running:

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+
NVidia GeForce 7800 GS

When I switch to open-source 'nv' driver, the system will not crash.

It is very difficult to reproduce as the lockup happens completely

Once when it crashed while I was on console, I saw errors with respect
to SMP_APIC_TIMER and such.

It could be a SMP bug in Nvidia proprietary driver.
