If you have magic sysrq turned on, hit alt sysrq t, and ideally collect 
the resulting backtrace and put it somewhere.

I don't know the details of what you speak. But I'd guess either "it's

No argument. Having a better framework than the one in src/tests would 
help, but it is at least a start. Have something we should be running?
