dmesg after kernel crashes

I've played with installing a rawhide kernel (4.12.0-rc5) onto a current Fedora 26 desktop and noticed a number of kernel crashes which end up at a complete input freeze / corrupted display.

I have attached the dmesg to this bug report.

I wont recommend using/keeping the GP106 (GTX 1060). It cant ever run with free software: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/04/15/nvidia_gtx_900_linux_driver_roadbloack/

Sell this crappy GP102 card away and go away from nvidia. Nvidia died with the 780ti card. Its the last end-user card that can be used normaly. Everything else is in some countries even a legal problem. Because the manufacturer (nvidia) blocks the users from beeing able to boot the software they want on THEIR hardware - happyly illegal in some countries. Hopefully some layer would sue the heck out of nvidia so that they would have to release the private signing key or close their doors.
Blocking the freedom of the users on such way should not be accepted by anyone.
