[driverloader] Occasional crashes with wg311v2 on FC2

we can see kernel oops in your dump and these oops happen just after the 
NVidia related modules are loaded and just before the DriverLoader 
module is removed from your kernel by the 'dldrconfig --dumpdiag' script.

As you have suggested, it is possible that the problem is either 
DriverLoader or the NVidia module. It is unlikely related to ACPI as all 
the kernel oops are generated while in the 'vfs' layer of the kernel.

Please try with different versions (even older) of the Windows XP driver 
to see if there is a difference.
