5.2 also has support for Panfrost (Mali-Midgard GPUs) but I'm not
sure if it already can support X11 yet and your X11 log mentions
libglamoregl in the segfault stack trace.

Apart from it bisect that Greg suggested you could also just try
blacklisting either panfrost or vpu kernel modules
/etc/udev/somewhere . This would prevent them from loading

Hope that helps
