I haven't tried cm9 alpha 2 but in reality unless the ramdisk has changed then there is no logical reason it shouldn't work. The only difference between the cm9 and the stock kernel's is the ramdisk.
If you wouldn't mind so we have a common frame of reference can you follow these steps and report your results.
1) Please make sure your doing a full wipe before flashing either ROM. I religiously use HB's Wipe tool..... that way there's no question that the system is clean.
2) Flash Any stock based ROM. I.E. Ultrabase (1.5 Preferably), Greeza's or a straight stock ICS ROM.
3) Then flash the kernel. No need to boot into the ROM first, before flashing the kernel.
2) Flash CM9 (i will test alpha2 and see if there is any reason for a problem ASAP).
3) Flash Gapps.
4) Flash Kernel.
A couple of things to keep in mind (and part of this i can help with. Shocker here but i have no clue how md5sums work... I've never used em), you could simply have a bad download, or a bad flash.
I'm currently running UB1.5, I'm downloading cm9 alpha2 at the moment, but alpha 1 seems to work with no issues.
Two side notes:
1) What bootloader version are you on - Again this shouldn't matter however it is good information to have.
2) Can you provide a logcat when the system is boot looping.
Note: I did get boot loops in the beginning, but only if I flashed the opposite kernel.

Are you looking for just stock speeds, or the actual stock kernel. If you just want to turn down the speed, there's no need for flashing another kernel, just fire up setCPU (or your CPU control app of choice) and adjust the max speed down to where you'd like it. I plan on posting a stock speed kernel with improvements of course, or i can whip up a zip for HB's kernel which for all intents and purposes is stock.

Okay so CM9 works... okay good deal. Have you tried again with The stock version? If so did you use the same file as before, or have you tried to re-download?
Redownloaded each version and flashed to there respective versions. I use Mepis 11, though that that may have been the problem. So I fired up the winblows box and redownloaded both roms, same thing (BTW after messin with windoze i feel like i need a shower). I flashed HB's, both ultrabase's and thors an CM9 had no problems. Even reflashed CWM recovery an reformatted my SD card just in case.
weird ... Well I'll dig deeper tonight once I finally get home and see if i can recreate this.
So I have one small bug to fix, but I ported the a500 version of TWRP, lol my recovery is now running my oc kernel.
