If you have a keyboard, does the caps lock key work (ie the keyboard driver
is working)? If so you could use the magic sysrq combination to dump task

Can you stop-a on the keyboard or send a break over the serial console?
If so then you can do ctrace, .registers, .locals at the OK prompt.

If it locks up hard then debugging becomes a little more difficult. Some
idea of the events up to the lockup will help.
