I mentioned this on the bug report, but I'll say it here as well for
anyone on the list that might benefit from it:

There have been some problems with PAT code in recent kernels that cause
recent versions of our driver to crash. I know that 2.6.29 was
definitely affected, but I was hoping that the 2.6.30 rc series would
have the fixes.

I do see from your kernel log that PAT is enabled:

	2009-04-15_08:14:02.83379 kern.info: x86 PAT enabled: cpu 0, old 0x7040600070406, new 0x7010600070106

Could you try adding "nopat" to your kernel boot command-line, (such as
in grub's menu.lst or else by manually editing the kernel command-line
at the grub interface).

And please let us know if that fixes this crash for you.

-Carl
