We removed the "init_fw" module option from the xc5000 module.  It is no 
longer necessary, and prevents us from taking advantage of power saving 
capabilities.

So, the OOPS itself is moot.  How did acpi_ds_exec_end_op enter the 
picture???  That I have no idea.  Can you try to reproduce that will a 
clean (not tainted) kernel?

Mike
