What is the best mechanism for detecting when a VM has locked up, that is to say, stuck in an infinite loop?

My application wakes any suspended VMs each frame and then releases the thread if it becomes idle (finished) or keeps it alive for the next frame if it becomes suspended.

I'd like to detect if one of the threads becomes stuck in an infinite loop (say while(true) { /*no suspend in here*/} and warn and/or destroy it. Is the sq_setdebughook the best way to do this, or is there a better way?
