I think you'll have to do more debugging on your own, before someone
will be able to help. My only idea would be either power supplies or
signal integrity issues.

I think you should focus on the hardware modifications you've made.

ACPI doesn't usually cause sporadic resets when exercising the graphics.

What would be in it for them? There are contractors available in the
coreboot community with plenty of relevant experience, but I can't
imagine that would be fixing "our board resets when we use graphics"
in return for an instance of the hardware..
