FIX: The device freezes during cold start on an ARM-based platform in Windows Embedded Compact 2013

Symptoms

Assume that you enable a hive-based registry and symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) for multi-core processors on an ARM-based platform in Windows Embedded Compact 2013. The device freezes on the retail build during cold start. The issue does not occur on the debug or checked build.

Note The device does not freeze if SMP is disabled to support one single-processor on the multi-core processor.
