Maybe not related to that but now my box is killed after this merge.

When I do not much on the box I get maybe 6h uptime , by doing some work ( compiling etc ) is random freeze.

I was able to capture the OOps finally :

After that the box is death need to hard reset it.

Interesting thing is when I compile the kernel with debug I don't get that ( or maybe its need longer to triggers it ? )

Config , lspci , dmesg , hardware specs , Oops message , and the top output when it Oops'ed there :
