GPU crash dump
Hardware: Intel NUC6i3SYH NUC with an i3-6100U, Intel HD graphics 520
bare Archlinux install with only the following packages installed outside base and base-devel.
grub, efibootmgr, os-prober, iw, wpa_supplicant, dialog, openssh, xorg-server, xorg-server-utils, Mesa, mesa-libgl, gnome, gnome-extra
Gnome boots fine, but as soon as I open the activities section, it freezes, shows corruption on screen, then crashes after 30 seconds or so, and kicks me back to the login screen. I've tried using Wayland and xorg, and even tried disabling hardware acceleration with a 20-intel.conf as suggested in the archlinux wiki.
I've tried both with and without the xf86 driver - with no luck.
Have updated the Intel microcode and ensured the UEFI bios is up to date. Still crashes.

Journalctl -b -0 output
Starting to think this is a hardware issue. Both ubuntu and windows 10 seem to be unstable as well, with the same GPU hang. I remember a while back, intel had a bad bios update which caused irreversible hardware damage. Error doesn't match up to that, but I wonder if this could be related.
Probably not worth spending time looking into, as the possibility of this being a hardware issue is high
If windows has similar behavior, it can't be mesa.
