Well it is marked High, Critical there so I doubt if there is much
more you can do.  Since no-one there has asked for further input from
you I guess you will just have to wait in hope.  Did you say you were
going to revert to the most recent kernel that did not exhibit the
problem?

A possibly relevant question, do you use suspend (or hibernate for
that matter)?  If so has it ever failed before the first suspend and
does it always resume from suspend ok?
