btw if the oops was on lkml like it was here you can also just look it
up on kerneloops.org via the search option

which for this case finds you
http://www.kerneloops.org/raw.php?rawid=59347&msgid=http://mid.gmane.org/20080904113408.d47c65f6.akpm@linux-foundation.org

and this has the decodecode already done 

and the search output at
http://www.kerneloops.org/search.php?search=get_next_timer_interrupt
shows that there's only been very few reports of this one, but of the
ones there were at least half were slab poisoned.

what the site doesn't do for an oops like this is show the C-code
interspersed, it's not that smart for general kernels (that only works
for fedora rpm kernels like here:
http://www.kerneloops.org/raw.php?rawid=57807&msgid=
)

otoh if you have the vmlinux you could do this locally
(hmm maybe I should clean that script up and submit for adding to
the scripts/ directory)
