I'm not sure if it's the same problem,

Well, "freezes at boot" is not the same as "RCU stalls".

but with kernel 4.9.0-2 I can boot fine, but after a few minutes I
start getting RCU stalls. That makes processes hang and rebooting
impossible (systemd shows that it's waiting for services to turn off,
but never kills them, and pressing ctrl+alt+del makes it hang too).
This is a desktop system with i5-3470.

Workaround is to install kernel 4.9.3 from the Kernel:stable repo.

Sounds like the fix for your issue went into 4.9.3 and you're good to
go. Or what is the problem?
