When I opened the BZ, the original symptom were a Xorg crash. On a few cases
the machine just hangs (something like 10% of the crashes).

In order to track the root cause and see if this issue was not solved on a
latter fix, I upgraded from kernel 3.9 to kernel 3.10.3 (and later to 3.10.4)
and updated all packages at the machine. 

With the updated packages, the symptom changed: when the GPU stops to answer to
mesa/Glamor, instead of causing Xorg to crash (and when the machine doesn't
hang) it now reports:

[15225.379837] radeon 0000:01:00.0: GPU lockup CP stall for more than 10000msec

As shown on this attachment:

The workaround to avoid the buggy code was to disable glx-tls at Mesa.
