Can you provide the output from an L2 "leds" command?  This will tell us
what the cpus are doing and whether they have interrupts enabled.  Have
you
contacted your support people yet?  I did not see an open case for this,
but have no idea how your support person exactly filed it.

Thanks,
Robin Holt
