xf86-video-nouveau config log
I am working on my own distro (avouch.org) and compile all packages myself. Compile config log have been attached. Tried with hardening flag ON and OFF both return same crash. Moreover, using ld.gold as default linker.
Does it work if you use nouveau instead of modesetting? [I see no log file indicating you've tried that.]
I'd say there's something wrong with your installation of mesa. At the very least, try not using gold.

Xorg crash log with nouveau driver
Same issue with nouveau driver log file is attached.
Right. So even with xf86-video-nouveau you still get it to die in nouveau_drm_screen_create -- something's wrong in nouveau_dri.so. There are oodles of tricks used in mesa for loading stuff -- could you try not using the experimental gold linker?
Thanks sir, the problem was with the mesa as you figured out.
When I compile the mesa with meson build system it contributed to xorg-server crash; could not figure out why. When compile with configure the problem resolved.
So where to file the Mesa meson build bug.
Probably Mesa -> Core.
Note that the meson build system is experimental.
