Seems to be caused by the "gyration driver" whatever that is. Do you
have such a USB device?

It could be some module mismatch, it looks suspicious
and from a quick look the gyration driver does nothing bad
in that init path. Try a make clean and remove/rebuild/reinstall all the modules
on the target system.

If that doesn't help perhaps disable CONFIG_HID_GYRATION,
but from your other oops something more seems to be broken anyways.
