[meta-freescale] [meta-fsl-arm] Help debugging kernel lockup

I know this is a bit off-topic, but I'm hoping someone might
have a clue how to help.

I have an LS1021 system that has become unstable - it will
lock up (reliably) 5 minutes after boot up, +/- a few seconds.
I enabled kernel debugging for this and got this info:

I have disabled all drivers except for network, serial and MMC.
My kernel is built using meta-fsl-arm/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-ls1_3.12.bb

Any ideas what might cause this or how I can debug it further?
