Fortunately, my ia64 box reproduces this oops "every time". 
So, I could chase it.

device_shutdown() function in drivers/base/power/shutdown.c
is followings.
 * device_shutdown - call ->shutdown() on each device to shutdown.
void device_shutdown(void)
        struct device * dev, *devn;

        list_for_each_entry_safe_reverse(dev, devn, &devices_kset->list,
                                kobj.entry) {
                if (dev->bus && dev->bus->shutdown) {
                        dev_dbg(dev, "shutdown\n");
                } else if (dev->driver && dev->driver->shutdown) {
                        dev_dbg(dev, "shutdown\n");
When oops occured, dev->driver pointed kset_ktype's address,
and dev->driver->shutdown was the address of bus_type_list.
So, Oops was caused by "Illegal operation fault".
kset_ktypes is pointed by system_kset.

If my understanding is correct, this loop can't distinguish between
struct device and struct kset, but both are connected in this list,
right? It may be the cause of this.
