Nice bug report, seems like from linux-source/REPORTING-BUGS.
But still:

* no relevant Cc (memory management added)
+ no output of `mount` (because if swap is on some file system, that
  *can* be another problem)
+ no information about amount of memory and its BIOS configuration

FYI, latter two (and much more) is one `dmesg` output. This output,
together with any other kernel information can be gathered by serial or
net consoles:

linux-source/Documentation/serial-console.txt
linux-source/Documentation/networking/netconsole.txt 

If console messages after freeze can be seen in text mode VGA/CRT
also, photos of it somewhere on ftp will be OK.
