Same sort of thing happened with me, but it appeared to happen during
suspend. (I say "appeared" because the system froze for a while at the
start of the suspend until I hit a key. This may be related to all the
recent churn in the TTY layer, combined with the fact that I was using
a serial console. It didn't help -- none of the backtraces got sent
out the serial port.)

I think it would be worthwhile to track down these unknown problems and
dependencies. It won't be easy, though...
