Are there any updates on the status of this issue?

The current bugzilla report [1] marks this as a power management
issue. However, many reports indicate that it would only freeze
when running X, so it's not completely clear if it's related to
the gfx driver too.

Also, do we know which CPUs are affect by this issue?
and which are NOT affected :) - would be quite relevant
in picking a CPU for a product.
