After thinking about it, I remembered I am using a broadcom wifi card, and there could be a problem with the driver that's used in 11.04 onwards, as I somehow recall one of the two drivers being decommissioned (correct me if I'm wrong)!
I'll try removing my wifi card tonight and reboot a couple of times to see if I get a panic too.
Oops in interrupt - that's gotta be ugly.
You need to post the first oops (that last screen-shot isn't the first oops there) to lkml.org Be warned, that is a very active list, and they like things done (exactly) their way.
There is doco on how to capture and post oops' in the source tree - start with the top-level README. If you don't have a kernel source tree, try lxr.linux.no/linux
Have you figured out the solution to this problem? I have an HP Touchsmart 9300 and this happens to me as well with any kernel newer than 2.6.32 (newest Centos 6.2 kernel causes this too though - 2.6.32-71-229. 2.6.32-71.29 worked fine.).
