Journal when bug crashes

After a few days of normal usage, without reboot, nouveau crashes. It happened more than once, but no clear pattern emerge to know how to reproduce it. To my knowledge, it could be as much as a video memory overflow than anything else.

I attached the journal. (No dmesg, because it was a complete crash - no possible switch to tty). What seems to be interesting is the line 660 and below. I joined a bit more detail before (it is not the complete log) because some error from nouveau may be interesting before, even though it didn't result in any crashes before.

I think it is the right place to commit this message. Please tell me if I am wrong.
