I've seen similar `Oopses' when I've compiled my ALSA sound drivers (for
my i815e motherboard's AC'97 audio) for the wrong kernel, or didn't do a
`make clean' before recompiling ALSA. But, to determine the problem, you
need to run your Oops output through 'ksymoops', do a 'man ksymoops' for
usage instructions. This will attach library calls to all those pointers
in the Oops outputs. That is where I would see that my Oopses were due
to ALSA, you should be able to better root-cause the problem this way.
