While browsing the internet using Chromium my entire machine froze, it was completely unresponsive to input but audio continued to play.

This bug report on the kernel bugtracker appears to be the same or at least a very similar problem:

In that report, Nicholas Kazlauskas posted a possible fix:

I have yet to test to see if this patch resolves the crashes I am experiencing, but I don't see this as being in the 5.3-rc series, and certainly not in the 5.2 stable releases. Was this fix perhaps overlooked/missed?

So far I just see that it is in amd-staging-drm-next as of August 1st:
Comment 2 Tom Seewald 2019-10-03 04:14:58 UTC
The patches mentioned earlier have landed in 5.4 and 5.3.2, and after running 5.4-rc1 for several days now I have been unable to reproduce the crash.
