kernel crashes on bootup

I've had a very interesting problem with kernels since 2.1.48 or so.
I can't point at a single kernel version change that caused my problem
because some kernels wouldn't compile, so...

I have a Micron Pro Magnum PPro200 with an Adaptec 2940UW and a Future
Domain TMC-1680. When the kernel goes to mount the root partition,
immediately after the "Freeing [X]k of unused memory" message it dumps
stack trace info onto the screen, at least two pages worth.

I have a feeling that this behavior is related to the aic7xxx driver
(which is compiled into the kernel in my case), but I'm not sure.
Does anyone have any ideas?
