Thanks for the pointers! I finally made it work starting from a previously
converged meta-GGA calculation, using EPS_SCHWARZ 1.0E-6, and EPS_PGF_ORB
1.0E-15 (wouldn't work for higher values of this parameter, complaining
that the Kohn-Sham matrix is not 100% occupied). Here are the timings:

  *** SCF run converged in    10 steps ***

Btw, I also had to play a little bit with the MEMORY parameter because for
values above ~2000 the simulation was crashing (e.g. WARNING: New heap
segment map at 0x1004be00000 failed: Cannot allocate memory). I contacted
my system administrator and mentioned that it may be an issue of compiling
cp2k using craype-hugepages. I'm not sure this is an issue many people will
have, but I wanted to document it.
