That sounds like it may be a known issue, although it's somewhat strange
that you did not see it with earlier kernels.
Can you test if the following workaround fixes the crash?

echo -n 7 >/proc/acpi/video/C09A/DOS

See e.g.:
You can find more information by googling for "hp 2510p lid close crash"
(but it affects other models as well).
