Activity in /var/log/messages around the first oops

Description of problem:
I just updated today to the newest NetworkManager from updates-testing, and after rebooting it oopsed every time it tried to connect via my Huawei stick. Downgrading to the previous version (0.7.1-4.git20090414) makes it work again.

Unfortunately, this is a bit of a drive-by bug posting because I just happened to be on mobile broadband this weekend and I won't be able to use it again after tomorrow, and I need to be online so I can't do the update now between now and then.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
I'll attach an excerpt from /var/log/messages showing the activity around the oopses. It's probably too long to show inline.

Can confirm this with an option card and NetworkManager-0.7.1-5.git20090617.fc11.x86_64.

Works fine with NetworkManager-0.7.1-4.git20090414.fc11.x86_64

Anyone get some of the oops?  I ran into something like this the other day with F11 as well with a few cards, it's a kernel bug due to "low_latency".  Technically nothing to do with NetworkManager.  If it's not actually the same oops as bug 500954, then we can un-dupe.
