Yeah means the GMCH itself probably hung, possibly not responding to
memory requests from the CPU.
The display was otherwise idle when it froze? The behavior you
describe sounds like a panic; there's a patch available to get some
more info in that case: "vt/console: try harder to print output when
panicing" that Dave Airlie just posted (attached). Can you apply it as
well and see if you can reproduce the problem?
