The crash may take a while (hours) to manifest and requires some video-watching
via Firefox and/or mpv (with '--opengl-pbo' option on opengl-hq profile). It
also may or may not need VAAPI to be used ('--hwdec=vaapi-copy' in case of

My kernel is built on OBS build-server, so I had to enable debuginfo packaging
and rebuild it, then debuginfo package used up mind-boggling 5,1gb of space
leaving me with measly ~400mb on / ! After that I managed to get this:
0x2e127 is in amdgpu_vm_update_directories
where line #1191 is:
struct amdgpu_bo *bo = parent->base.bo, *pbo;

But it a different build of the kernel, so I don't know if this is even
