I can't make much sense out of the stack trace. Especially
that the EIP is at cache_flusharray lets me think that
this has nothing to do with DVB.

You could try to enable some of the debug options in the
"kernel hacking" section to get more meaningful traces,
especially CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER. A nightly run of
memtest86 wouldn't hurt, too.
