Maybe this is a silly suggestion, but how hard would it be to write a script
that unscrambled the output?

If I only knew how to find it on Google (I tried briefly), I'm sure
something similar has already been written.

It seems like it is a simpler problem because we know the maximum number of
processors and the possible format strings.  I wish I had the time to play
with it because I think it would be fun to write.

It seems like the priorities are:
1. Stop the APs from executing when they shouldn't.
2. Fix locking if it's still a problem.

I think the garbled output provides a good hint (although it is annoying) at
what's wrong.
