Today I noted that AMD published the public errata document for Ryzens,

Some of the issues listed there looks quite relevant to the potential
hangs that some people still experience with the machines.  I wrote
a script which should apply the recommended workarounds to the erratas
that I find interesting.

To run it, kldload cpuctl, then apply the latest firmware update to your
CPU, then run the following shell script.  Comments indicate the errata
number for the workarounds.

Please report the results.  If the script helps, I will code the kernel
change to apply the workarounds.

# 1057, 1109
sysctl machdep.idle_mwait=0

for x in /dev/cpuctl*; do
	# 1021
	cpucontrol -m '0xc0011029|=0x2000' $x
	# 1033
