I have received a backtrace and dmesg from Michael.
It was caused by cbb re-probe-attach when ipw is loaded after booting:
1) cbb/ipw is on same pci bus (pci2)
2) cbb attach failed during boot, due to unable to alloc irq res.
3) load ipw module after booting caused all unattached devices
(including cbb) under pci2 re-probe-attach, then cbb tried to attach
again, but failed again. But this time the error cleaning up in cbb
attach code caused problem: resource is busy when releasing.
Didn't have time to take a closer look at it last night. Above is the
conclusion I got before I went to sleep.
