Raise the Itanic! (part 2)

Previously …

I finally got my HP Integrity RX2620 (dual core Itanium II) working, after a lot of messing around in the EFI shell. It is now running Debian-ia64 Wheezy. The thing is so noisy that you can’t stay in the room with it for very long, and I discovered that if you pull out the fans then it overheats and shuts down after a few minutes.

Here is lstopo output:

and /proc/cpuinfo:
