Can't be, as it appears to happen on WRAPs as well. These platforms have
temperature control hardware which will assert Reset on the CPU if it gets
too hot. Reset gets deasserted as soon as the device cools down again.

This circuit prevents instabilities which might be caused by excessive
temperature. Yup, the device is temporarily shut down, but it won't do any
funny things, and it will reboot automatically.

However, noone who had reported a freeze had the luck of whitnessing an
automatic reboot.
