Let me guess: you're running multi-socket systems, and the kernel
version behind that "3.16.0-4" label is 3.16.51-2, not 3.16.43-2?
There seems to be an issue with that latest kernel update in Debian
Jessie, mainly affecting multi-socket machines, but since Dec 4
when this kernel package (set) was released I haven't seen any
updates or fixes.
Would using the jessie-backports kernel (4.9.x) be an option for you?
