Summary0003962: CPU Soft lockup (Skylake 6700HQ) due to nouveau - Doesn't finish booting
DescriptionKali weekly image http://cdimage.kali.org/kali-weekly/kali-linux-2017-W16-amd64.iso doesn't really finish booting, I get CPU soft lock up which lead to kernel oops and that makes the machine unuseable (X doesn't even start, all I get is the console).

Based on the screenshots attached, they seem to be in nouveau. And those oops/issues keep coming on the screen until I force turn off.
Additional InformationInstalling 2016.2 works but last time I did, then updated it (which included the kernel), it failed to boot due to nouveau blocking at boot time.

It's an Optimus laptop with 4K monitor (dual GPU: Intel + Nvidia 960M).
CPU is i7 6700HQ.

Here is the exact laptop model: Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY
