What version of the em8300 driver are you using?
I think this issue might be fixed in the one of the recent releases from 
http://dxr3.sourceforge.net/download.html

A problem was fixed where the interrupt handler was installed before the 
card was properly initialised and a stray interrupt from a card sharing 
the interrupt line would cause an oops.

Disabling preempt option may help as well.

The best place to follow up on this is probably the dxr3-devel mailing 
list, see http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=5165
