Unfortunately, i can't use a serial console, and netconsole refused to work
(both built as a module and within the kernel). However, after some 20 shots

I have to add some more info:
- sometimes i'm having another error with the same kernel, but in a different
moment (earlier). Again, i took my camera and got this out of it:
