I'm starting to wonder if it's bad RAM or something. Just got a couple of
worrying warnings on boot from the same system (after it spontaneously
rebooted, with nothing revealing in the previous boot's logs).

I once had such too and since then I'm using memtest=3 in my kernel command line on x86* machines. Depending on the amount of RAM it will slow down boot by a few seconds, but if you don't care if your machine comes up in 5 or 10 seconds, it is a no-brainer.
