  System lockups with utopic kernel

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading to utopic, I've been experiencing occasional system
  lockups - when this occurs, nothing at all is responsive including the
  mouse pointer and Alt-SysRq combinations.

  Lockups only occur infrequently - perhaps once every day or two days -
  so testing this is going to be slow and problematic.

  So far, rolling back to the trusty kernel seems to have fixed it, so
  it seems unlikely to be a hardware problem.

  I'm going to reboot into http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-
  ppa/mainline/v3.17.4-vivid/ now and run with that for a few days.
