How to diagnose crashes - N440GX + 4.11-STABLE

Hello all:

I have an Intel N440GX running 4.11-STABLE that is crashing every few
hours. I built a kernel with debugging enabled, but it doesn't seem to
help, or at least I haven't been able to take advantage of it. I'm
wondering if there's a way I can figure out if this is a hardware or a
kernel compatibility issue? The dmesg output is below:

Thanks in advance,
