Nope. DHCP is user-space and has nothing that could potentially lock up
the system otherwise.

I'm no expert, but that looks utterly wrong. The kernel should never
have to do anything with a user-space process, and definitely not a
graphical one. If I'm reading this correctly, they somehow jumped to
user-space code from the kernel, which is a big no-no and most likely
the cause of the crash.

Did it install any kernel modules? If so, those are probbaly causing
memory corruption or something else. Try uninstalling it (or, given
their programming quality if my above reading is correct, reinstall the
machine) and contacting their support.
