Kernel 3.7.10-1.16 panic after zypper upgrade from 3.7.10-1.11

Overnight I did a long overdue zypper up which amongst other things upgraded the kernel to 1.16 from 1.11. However when I then boot the system up I get a kernel panic. I didn’t quite catch the details before I had to leave for work, but it looked like something was strange in the cpu handling. I saw something about not being able to (re?)set the tsc timer, and the panic seemed to be a watchdog picking up on a stuck cpu 0.

More details to come when I get back tonight, but wanted to get this up there.

Did you try older kernel from
grub ==> advanced ==> choose older kernel
