Kernel crash with 3.0.35

I am running linux 3.0.35 on a custom imx6 board. On some boards after a day of running fine, the kernel crashes. It seems to happen only if I enable a wifi module (realtek 8192cu).

There are other instances of the same board running fine with the wifi module.

Here is the crash log on the console. The stack info seems to indicate an issue with memory.

Any one has any thoughts on why this might be happening?
