BUG at kernel/timer.c:1100 when using JFFS2

I've come across a problem when loading a module straight after unmounting a JFFS2 partition.
I'm using a Geos ADSL router board with an AMD Geode LX/CS5536 chipset and a Hynix H27U1G8F2BTR NAND flash.

I can reproduce my problem with this shell script:

mount -t jffs2 mtd:logs /mnt
echo "Hello World" > /mnt/file
umount /mnt
modprobe r8169

After a few seconds I get this panic:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

Any ideas on what I should do next?
