I'm stuck!

As told before, I have one working (in production) system and others
failing Gentoo systems (including the testing machine).

I've check the working system against the testing machine and looked for
differences. I did remove differences one by one (luckily systems are
very near from each other) and couldn't have the testing machine to
work.

I've check Linux kernel configuration (first) and the whole system for
installed packages and compilation options. On each difference found
I've done:
- compilation and reinstallation of ALL the packages;
- reboot;
- tests.

Now, I have almost two exact same systems behaving differently. Some
minor differences remain about installed packages (missing on testing):
- lshw
- pv
- colorgcc
- autofs
- iperf

Hardware isn't the same, though. Main differences are:
- Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5420  @ 2.50GHz (cpu family : 6)
  hardware RAID
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz (cpu family : 6)
  software RAID

Ouch!
