Video freezes (nouveau: kernel rejected pushbuf: Invalid argument)

My desktop freezes randomly sometimes, triggered by Chromium in my case (other people report different sources) with messages like the following in syslog/journalctl:

I wonder if there's a solution.

Re: Video freezes (nouveau: kernel rejected pushbuf: Invalid argument)

Have the same case. System freezes, the initiator is 'google-chrome' process. The exception is inside nouveau driver:

Re: Video freezes (nouveau: kernel rejected pushbuf: Invalid argument)

Exactly same here. Opening chromium with the option "chromium --disable-gpu" just runs ok. I've upgraded arch linux with "pacman -Syu" just today and the problem has begun after upgrade.

Re: Video freezes (nouveau: kernel rejected pushbuf: Invalid argument)

I ended up switching to the nvidia driver, which works buttery smooth in Cinnamon Desktop, but Gnome Desktop always gives that dumb "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" screen. I discovered that if I'm in Cinnamon, I can just run `gnome-shell --relace &` to switch to my Gnome desktop, so that's my workaround for now.

With the `nvidia` drivers I don't get this "kernel rejected pushbuf" error any more and things are running smoothly.

EDIT: I'd like to add that Gnome Desktop now works perfectly after installing intel-ucode (while on the proprietary nvidia driver, I haven't gone back to nouveau).
