I'm including Xorg.0.log and outputs from dmesg, `journalctl -b` and `journalctl --since=${time_of_freeze}`

Gerardo, do you mean that I should report this bug to nouveau upstream? I thought that according to what they say on "If you are using packages from your distribution, send the bug reports to your distribution and not directly to us." I should report it here.

Sure, otherwise upstreams will not know about it. ;)
