could you put a udelay(1000*1000) to the end of kernel/printk.c:printk()?
This way you have a 1 second delay after each line printed.

or, if you are in a hacker mood tonight, you could try placing

for (;;);

near the suspected code and try moving this code around to find the line
that causes the reboot.
