[alcatel-nsp] Low voltage condition causes CPM2 and IOM2 to fail

Both incidents happened due to unusual circumstances with the office power, where voltage and amperage were lower than typically expected.
However, I would expect that upon restoral of the DC power system to a fully-operational state, that the router would boot without needing to replace several hardware components.

Make sure you have enough amperage to power these cards, check the wire gauge; voltage is not enough.

We might have just seen this. The cards never boot and have to be replaced?

When this occurs, the CPM2 and IOM2 on our 7750 routers fail to restore when appropriate power levels are restored. In both instances, multiple components (both CPMs, or multiple IOMs) have simultaneously failed to boot on the chassis. These failed components do not POST. It appears some type of memory corruption or zeroing occurs.
