In the stack backtrace above, the kernel hadn't even reached SMP boot after
about 50s. That was extremely slow. I tried the 4.7.3 kernel and it booted
up fine. So I suspect that there may be too many interrupts going on and it
consumes most of the CPU cycles. The prime suspect is the random driver, I
think.
Any chance of bisecting it at least partially? The random driver
doesn't do interrupts itself, it just gets called by other drivers
doing intterrupts. So if there are too many of them, that would be
something else..

I have finally finished bisecting the problem. I was wrong in saying that the 4.7.3 kernel had no problem. It did have. There were some slight differences between the 4.8 and 4.7 kernel config files that I used. After some further testing, it was found that the bootup problem only happened when the following kernel config option was defined:

CONFIG_EFI_MIXED=y

Bisecting reviewed that the following 4.6 patch was the first patch that had this problem:

c9f2a9a65e4855b74d92cdad688f6ee4a1a323ff
[PATCH] x86/efi: Hoist page table switching code into efi_call_virt()

I did testing on my test system with three different partition sizes:
1) 16-socket Broadwell-EX with 12TB memory
2) 8-socket Broadwell-EX with 6TB memory
3) 4-socket Broadwell-EX with 3TB memory

Only the 16-socket and 8-socket configurations had this problem. I am not sure if over 4TB of main memory is a factor or not.

I have attached several slightly different panic messages that had happened in my testing. I know little about the EFI code and so I am not sure if it is a kernel problem, firmware problem or a combination of both. Hopefully someone with knowledge on this code will shed light on this problem.

Cheers,
Longman

    efi: Runtime-wrapper: Get rid of the rtc_lock spinlock
    
    The rtc_lock spinlock aims to serialize access to the CMOS RTC
    between the UEFI firmware and the kernel drivers that use it
    directly. However, x86 is the only arch that performs such
    direct accesses, and that never uses the time related UEFI
    runtime services. Since no other UEFI enlightened architectures
    have a legcay CMOS RTC anyway, we can remove the rtc_lock
    spinlock entirely.

     * We don't need to carry our own formatting code in the esrt driver
       because the kobject API can do that for us - Rasmus Villemoes
    
     * Update the arm64 file paths in Documentation/efi-stub.txt to match
       the current tree - Alan Ott
    
     * Consistently preface all print statements with "efi" arch/x86 so
       that it's more obvious to users reporting problems which statements
       in the kernel log are relevant for EFI - Matt Fleming
    
     * Fix a boot crash in the ACPI BGRT driver and delete
       efi_lookup_mapped_addr() since it's useless now that the EFI
       mappings *only* exist in the 'efi_pgd' page table. Instead we

commit 67a9108ed4313b85a9c53406d80dc1ae3f8c3e36
Author: Matt Fleming <m...@codeblueprint.co.uk>
Date:   Fri Nov 27 21:09:34 2015 +0000

    x86/efi: Build our own page table structures
    
    With commit e1a58320a38d ("x86/mm: Warn on W^X mappings") all
    users booting on 64-bit UEFI machines see the following warning,
    
      ------------[ cut here ]------------
      WARNING: CPU: 7 PID: 1 at arch/x86/mm/dump_pagetables.c:225 note_page+0x5d
      x86/mm: Found insecure W+X mapping at address ffff88000005f000/0xffff88000
      ...
      x86/mm: Checked W+X mappings: FAILED, 165660 W+X pages found.
      ...
    
    This is caused by mapping EFI regions with RWX permissions.
    There isn't much we can do to restrict the permissions for these
    regions due to the way the firmware toolchains mix code and
    data, but we can at least isolate these mappings so that they do
    not appear in the regular kernel page tables.
    
    In commit d2f7cbe7b26a ("x86/efi: Runtime services virtual
    mapping") we started using 'trampoline_pgd' to map the EFI
    regions because there was an existing identity mapping there
    which we use during the SetVirtualAddressMap() call and for
    broken firmware that accesses those addresses.
    
    But 'trampoline_pgd' shares some PGD entries with
    'swapper_pg_dir' and does not provide the isolation we require.
    Notably the virtual address for __START_KERNEL_map and
    MODULES_START are mapped by the same PGD entry so we need to be
    more careful when copying changes over in
    efi_sync_low_kernel_mappings().
    
    This patch doesn't go the full mile, we still want to share some
    PGD entries with 'swapper_pg_dir'. Having completely separate
    page tables brings its own issues such as synchronising new
    mappings after memory hotplug and module loading. Sharing also
    keeps memory usage down.

From c9f2a9a65e4855b74d92cdad688f6ee4a1a323ff Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Matt Fleming <m...@codeblueprint.co.uk>
Date: Fri, 27 Nov 2015 21:09:33 +0000
Subject: [PATCH] x86/efi: Hoist page table switching code into efi_call_virt()

This change is a prerequisite for pending patches that switch to
a dedicated EFI page table, instead of using 'trampoline_pgd'
which shares PGD entries with 'swapper_pg_dir'. The pending
patches make it impossible to dereference the runtime service
function pointer without first switching %cr3.

It's true that we now have duplicated switching code in
efi_call_virt() and efi_call_phys_{prolog,epilog}() but we are
sacrificing code duplication for a little more clarity and the
ease of writing the page table switching code in C instead of
asm.
