[Solved] Kernel BUG at include/linux/netdevice.h:501, and sky2?

So, ever since a certain point in time between kernel 3.11.x and now (3.12.5-1), I have been getting this strangely inconsistent error on bootup. I would estimate that about 3 out of every 4 reboots leads to this error message, and the bootup process

So, ever since a certain point in time between kernel 3.11.x and now (3.12.5-1), I have been getting this strangely inconsistent error on bootup. I would estimate that about 3 out of every 4 reboots leads to this error message, and the bootup process terminates in a black screen and what (appears) to be a system hang. However I CTL+ALT+F2, log in, and I output dmesg to a boot log, and everything my eyes have seen is now your visual property as well. The remaining 25% of my reboots patches through and boots directly to my window manager successfully. Now the output seems to be screaming to me "sky2 is the culprit", as EIP seems to be pointing in its general direction at the time of error.  However, I am more inclined to believe that my hardware's interaction with the driver is more likely to be responsible. If sky2 was actually a real problem, I doubt I would be the only one complaining about this. Nonetheless, I am quite vexed, and would greatly appreciate anbody's help here. Much appreciated, and perhaps I can provide you with some other (perhaps) useful information:

UPDATE: So I ran some low level troubleshooting and decided to test out the linux-lts (3.10.24-1-lts) kernel. No problems at all. Everything works fine with my ethernet adapter and the sky2 module. It just appears that something occurred in the newer kernels to break the interface for at least one Marvell adapter. This solution works for now, but I suppose I should file a bug report eventually. In the meantime, any insight is welcome.
