Possible Bug With Linux Host and Broadwell CPU's (SMAP feature)

I received a Dell latitude e7450 (Broadwell CPU) and as noted in my forum post, Virtualbox Hangs at "0% Starting Virtual Machine". According to the log files it never actually gets to the boot sequence. https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=65932
I noticed another person with a Broadwell CPU was having the same problem here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/581301/virtualbox-stuck-on-starting-virtual-machine/583628
And that leads me to believe that there may be a bug in Virtualbox on Linux Hosts and Broadwell CPU's.
To be clear, I enabled Virtualization support in my bios, did a fresh install of Mint 17.1, only installed virtualbox and added my user to vboxusers and it will not boot. If I reboot and load my Windows 7 Partition, Virtualbox works just fine, so the hardware is capable of virtualization, and it works, just not with a Linux host.
I've attached logs, hopefully they shed some light on the issue!
