Yes, but after these crashes have happened for a while, vmalloc
problems appear.

sddm crash might be related to X server dying under it, or it crashes
for it own problems (varying signals and addresses beacuse of some
ASLR?) and causes X server restart that triggers another ROM allocation
round.

I did read the kernel code and I do not see how the dmesg lines are
possible without corresponding aty128fb lines about the same ROM
signature, or why the ROM signature is sometimes 0x1111 and sometimes
0x1110 instead of x86 ROM signature (that clearly is not there,
but this is expected).
