The stack trace should show where the problem is . If it's in the kernel
we will see kernel functions before do_IRQ() , if it's just a whacked
out task then do_IRQ() would be first in the stack trace . 

I can't speak for everyone else, but I would want to catch both. That
way we'll know if it's just a whacked out task, or a kernel problem.
