I have the same issue. It has been happening for me for a while, so I
switched to the nv driver (which is terribly slow for me).
I was able to get a dump, by having all the debugger bits in the kernel
config, and when it locked up, I simply typed "call doadump" [enter],
then "reset" [enter]. I got my dump, even though I couldn't see the
typing. I have yet to do anything with the dump :(
