Well, I don't think the problem occurs due to the restart of your
board ...

... but unfortunately I can't tell how such an error results from the
driver. Are you able to reproduce it?
Since the driver "works", I never got such an error nor another kernel

[The only thing that comes to my mind is the very high interrupt volume,
because of the very small size (32 byte) of the playback FIFO (of the
AC97 controller) => hardware issue. But, since interrupts are _disabled_
during execution of interrupt handlers, I am sure that this cannot be
the source of the problem.]
