Screenshot of the kernel panic

Description of problem:
This is a virtual machine (under VMWare ESX 4.2) acting as a web server running Apache/PHP/MySQL from the distro and all of a sudden it showed in the console the panic attached to this bug report.

I have been searching all over but I failed to find something related to this.  I'm in the plan to updating to RHEL 6.3 but I'm reporting the problem anyway.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)
* kernel-2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64
* glibc-2.12-1.47.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
This was the first time so far.  The server usually is very stable so I have no idea how to reproduce this.
