It's easy to explain the crash:

Someone called add_timer with either an invalid or corrupted timer_list
pointer, and this caused an oops in kernel/sched.c, around line 1153

fn(data); <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

But please don't ask me which driver did that ;-(

Could someone with a Redhat 2.2.16-3 kernel check how gcc compiled the
function call?
My kernel uses
call *%esi

_If_ 2.2.16-3 uses the same instruction, then c885b9bc might point into
the buggy driver.
