Have you tried whether it would be sufficient to not initialize memory 
again in this case? I am seeing the same issue on another intel chipset, 
but I wonder whether we really have to be so rough ... especially 
thinking about wakeup from sleep states at some point when we have to 
think about when we execute which parts of the code anyways..

When I reboot, I usually hang or triple fault at the CPU init while the 
device tree is walked.
