Well, I don't find this oops harmless at all : my box is usually
freezing while in a huge number of other oopses that directly follow this one,
and then nothing makes it into the logs. I had to set this sysctl once
in order to get the first oops, but that's not related to the other

What is the second Oops?

No idea... without the sysctl, the screen keeps scrolling printing new oopes (49 of them in my last attempt), in which case nothing about it ever reaches the disk log (and it looks like the kernel buffer is too short when using kmsgdump).
Could it be possible to have something like:
echo 2 > /proc/sys/kernel/panic_on_oops
...and have the system panic at the 2nd oops ?
