It's strange that the kernel locks up so soon.

The bug report won't be useful until you test the newest kernel releases
( or For the report to be interesting to Arch
developers, you should test against, because 2.6.34 has been
superseded by it.

If only a testing machine is affected, you could simply wait until 2.6.35
leaves testing/, update and see what happens.
