So far I'm getting nothing on the original machine. As of today it's applied as the last patch on 3.12.0-0.rc4.git0.1.fc20.x86_64. Unfortunately at the moment I'm a bit too dense to figure out how to get a new kernel applied to an existing live package so I can try this on a USB stick. While maybe unrelated, the oops was occurring at least 4x as often booted from USB stick media than HDD.
