Could you please pipe that oops message through ksymoops and send the
output (i.e., resolve these addresses into symbols)? Without this, the
oops message is unfortunately quite useless. You can get more
information of how to do this from Documentation/oops-tracing.txt of the
Linux kernel tree.

Could you please also describe which modules were loaded? I would
appreciate it if you could reproduce this problem without having first
tainted the kernel with proprietary modules and/or using forced insmod..
