Affects Skylake and Kabylake so far, I'm not sure how extensive
within each series, but as F31 has rebased to 5.4 I thought I'd give a
heads up. It's actually somewhat rare, I have an npm+electron chat app
that seems to hit this way more often than say Firefox (and I'm not
chatting near as much as I'm webbing).

If you hit it, revert to 5.3.18 and if you want cc to the bug report
with CPU model. Another idea is to use a current 5.5.0rc, it's fixed
there but the backport is giving upstream devs some grief so I'm not
sure when it's going to get fixed in 5.4. I think part of the delay is
also the two holidays falling on Wednesdays :D
Arch Linux often has good documentation. Intel Graphics
has a section:
X freeze/crash with intel driver
Some issues with X crashing, GPU hanging, or problems with X freezing, can
be fixed by disabling the GPU usage with the NoAccel option - add the
following lines to your configuration file
Option "NoAccel" "True"
Alternatively, try to disable the 3D acceleration only with the DRI option:
Option "DRI" "False"
