What I described below as well froze the whole machine - till

Don't know if it is of much use but this is what I was using iirc
Jan back then wrote it for his laptop and mine showed the same behavior and
being close enough chipset-wise it did the trick on mine as well.
Obviously reading uefi-variables from the os as well triggers some SMI action.
So booting with a legacy bios - if possible - might be an interesting test-case.
