I've had this panic myself, on a system that would run 7.1 for weeks at
a time. More importantly, this is a very standard desktop system with
very simple apps for casual use:

As far as modules are concerned:

Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1   13 0xc0400000 624a64   kernel
 2    1 0xc0a25000 5464     vesa.ko
 3    1 0xc0a2b000 6a45c    acpi.ko
 4    1 0xc55bc000 22000    linux.ko
 5    1 0xc5f4d000 9000     i915.ko
 6    1 0xc5f56000 13000    drm.ko

sound, snd_hda and geom_journal are built into the kernel (I am
journaling /usr and /var). There are no other differences (other than
some removed drivers) from GENERIC

The latest incident was this morning, while I was opening firefox.  The
system has 2G of memory and 1G swap and it never runs out of memory (it
won't even touch swap most of the times) as it is just a standard
desktop (XFCE).

Unfortunately I don't have a dump at this point, but as the system runs
24/7 I'll make sure to get one if it happens next time. I've nuked and
reinstalled all packages from scratch today.
