OK standing by.

I have no idea really. The funny thing is that Russell has a similar
platform (Assabet) and he's not seeing the issue. It appears on this
h3600 iPAQ only.

So here is the backtrace:

sa11x0_pcmcia_init() which starts this chain of events is called as
an fs_initcall(), see drivers/pcmcia/sa1100_generic.c
if I comment out this one, I get the same thing in the frambuffer
driver instead, which is at module_init().

I don't have a trace so it's not like I know exactly what happened
before this point,
but the dmesg up to here reads:
