I speculate that this might be related to the problem. The fusion
driver was recently flipped to default to MSI enable (previously it had
disabled them). Could you boot it with the fusion module parameter

mpt_msi_enable=0

if it actually boots that will be a good confirmation that MSI is to
blame.

This I suspect is because of a lost interrupt.

And this one looks to be a second bug: The MSI fault path is actually
causing this oops.
