The error state is purposefully racy as we expect it to be called at any
time and so have avoided any locking whilst capturing the crash dump.
However, with multi-engine GPUs and multiple CPUs, those races can
manifest into OOPSes as we attempt to chase dangling pointers freed on
other CPUs. Under discussion are lots of ways to slow down normal
operation in order to protect the post-mortem error capture, but what it
we take the opposite approach and freeze the machine whilst the error
catpure runs (note the GPU may still running, but as long as we don't
process any of the results the driver's bookkeeping will be static).

Note that by of itself, this is not a complete fix. It also depends on
the compiler barriers in list_add/list_del to prevent transversing the
lists into the void.
