Kernel oops while playing sound

kernel-188.8.131.52-49.fc8.x86_64 gets an oops while playing sound (both times
it happened while using mythtv). The sound continues to play fine but the sound
can not be controlled anymore and the player never exits and stays in a defunct
I am attaching the stack trace with the oops

lspci output attached, let me know if anything else is needed.
Try re-running sound card detection. Some devices may have changed configuration
in the kernel update.
It is the right card, the same card is detected again. I noticed that due to a
missconfiguration mythtv used oss instead of alsa. Switching to alsa seems to
have cured the problem although I use the laptop very rarely to be certain yet.
Since nobody probably uses oss anymore the issue is really minor so it probably
doesn't worth spending any time on it unless the fix is trivial.
Yep, OSS has been deprecated since 2004 or so. Glad it seems to be working with
ALSA. Feel free to reopen this bug if the problem persists when using ALSA.
