The host is using the ath9k driver. eth0+wlan0 are bridged. Shortly after I start using the wireless network with my macbook, the bug triggers. No idea if it's wireless related, because there's also a rtl8169_rx_interrupt entry in the stacktrace.
This is a transcript, since I don't (have/know of) any way to get the backtrace out of a crashed box.
lots of br_flood_deliver
lots of br_*_finish
one ? rtl8169_interrupt
one ? ath9k_ioread32
Can you take a digital photograph of the screen and attach that to the report?
I provoked the panic twice, so there are two photos. Each time the panic happened, I saw two stack traces fly by. My screen isn't tall enough to capture both, but at the very top of the second photo you see the last couple lines of the first stack trace.
ip_fragment+0x52 is line 160 of include/net/dst.h

There's no mention of the kernel version in this report?
