Last time I've played around with all the combinations, only
intel_iommu=off was good enough to prevent the hang.
intel_iommu=igd_off still hangs (which is what the current value
exported by the dmar code dopends on, iirc). If I remember things
correctly, intel_iommu=off also reliably works around issues for all
reporters (both semaphores and rc6).
And for reproducing it, at least here the key ingredient seems to be a
kde4 desktop. Spare the jokes ;-)
