Yeah I'm getting this oops as well but have had difficulty extracting any information from the system. I suggest you file a bug, and cc: bugzilla at I'll add what info I have, even if I have to take a photograph (egads).

I get this after rebooting from 'yum install broadcom-wl' and I recover after using yum erase. It's on a Core 2 Duo. EFI booting. Only with 3.6.1-1, previous kernels are OK.
