There have been problems with PnP BIOS support on various motherboards.
Try rebuilding the kernel package without PNPBIOS support (you probably
don't need it - it's there in order to manage resource allocation for
legacy hardware like serial ports, and in most cases the BIOS will
happily set those up on its own) and see if that works. If so, send a
copy of the oops and your kernel version to linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
and the kernel developers will deal with it. Another thing worth trying
is to make sure your BIOS is fully up to date.
