After a freeze, can you grab a copy of dmesg, Xorg.log, intel_reg_dump,
and /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_error_state. From my perspective, the
last contains the most interesting information (the batchbuffer executing
at the time of a gpu hang). If there is nothing in any of those, echo t >
/proc/sysrq-trigger and look for the stacktraces in dmesg.
Also what type of freeze is it? A complete hard hang, the system no longer
even pingable? The cursor continues to move, but no other screen updates?
The screen entirely frozen (or maybe flashing in a hypnotic pattern) but
the machine nevertheless is accessible over the network? Does VT switching
still work? Etc. 'Freeze' covers a whole multitude of sins, the more
information you can give us, the quicker we can pinpoint the cause.
