How about a hard power switch? + crash report

Dendrocalamus64, sysrq is not enabled by default on MrFixIT's kernel:

CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ=y
CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ_DEFAULT_ENABLE=0

You did not run into garbage SYSRQs anyway. The cause of your kernel crashes is hard to debug. Perhaps install MrFixIT's latest kernel 4.4.222 or even better move to a distribution with a 5.X kernel. The 5.X kernels are rock-stable on the Pinebook Pro.

More recent kernels, such as Manjaros 5.X kernel, have an additonal option CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ_SERIAL. I'm surprised Manjaro has completely disabled SYSRQ while not making use of CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ_SERIAL=0.

There is significant (~3Vpp) Crosstalk between the audio and UART lines. This is a hardware issue.

This is highly interesting but why is there cross-talk even when there is no headset plugged in? Shouldn't the audio line be "idle"?
