Seems to help, thus it's indeed this issue. I failed to mention that "once
per day" meant a day of regular use, of which heavy loads were only a tiny
fraction. I've applied this register setting, then kept the machine busy
(mostly with randconfig kernel builds) for a day, no explosions yet -- so
there's a good chance the problem would have triggered.

I have no clue about these matters so I'll leave it to you guys. But, as
the other report I see gives different effects (frequent segfaults vs rare
insta-reboots), you do want to include my machine in testing.

Thanks for the workaround!
