Don't know if this is relevant but I had this very similar stack trace
come up a few days ago (below).  I am working on a PXA 270/xscale with
gcc version 4.8.2 (Buildroot 2013.11-rc1-00028-gf388663).  Going to try
to see if I can reproduce it a little more readily before I start trying
to narrow down what is causing it.

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000011
