Could it be the powernow-k8 kernel module?
That appears to have been the source of system-freezing problem I was
having. I disabled the powernow-k8 kernel module almost three weeks ago
and have been running without incident since. Before that, my system
was locking up (totally unresponsive to keyboard or mouse, monitor image
stuck) as often at two or three times a day at worst, once every few
days at best.
Very different hardware, though, so it might not be your issue. From
what I could gather, it seems to affect some amd64 systems and it seems
not to matter whether you're running a 32- or 64-bit kernel.
