Do verbose boot (`boot -v') with large SC_HISTORY_SIZE (1000 at least,
2000 at most), and after boot check for "SMAP ..." lines at the very
beginning of the kernel boot log at /dev/console. (They are not written
to log viewable with dmesg.) Another way is to use serial console.
With this SMAP lines one can say more concrete diagnosis.
