It's a Cascade Lake as well.  But, I never trust hardware at a hardware
company.  These could be preproduction CPUs or BIOS or both, or have
some bonkers configuration knob flipped.

It's also got a bunch of PMEM plugged and onlined, including the
_possibility_ of kernel data structures ended up on PMEM.  They *mostly*
don't end up there, but it does happen on occasion.

Anyway, I'll see if we can do some more runs with your latest version.
It looks like it's been picked up for -mm so 0day should be pounding on
it soon enough.
