Mountain Lion hangs after FIPS

From one day to the other my ML 10.8.3 installation wont boot anymore.

Clover EFI bootloader gets stuck most of the time while loading itself, displaying only a 7 in the corner of the screen, freezing the system.

Using Chameleon on a USB stick I got to load OS X, but it always hangs after "FIPS user space POST Success", still responding to keyboard input however, but doing apparently nothing other than that.

FIPS seems not to be the problem as the hang also occurs when using boot flag fips_mode=0 in this case hanging after "Bypassing FIPS mode for user space!"


EDIT: It eventually boots, but takes a long time to get from FIPS test to "Waiting for DSMOS"
