Hmm.  The only thing in the cx23885 driver that tries to schedule work,
and thus the only thing that could possibly pass in a bad argument, is
the netup_ci_slot_status() function.  It gets called when an IRQ comes
in indicating a GPIO[01] event, and the driver thinks the card is a
NetUp Dual DVB-S2 CI card.

That's consistent with the "fatal exception in interrupt", but without
the backtrace, one can't be completely sure this call to queue work was
initiated by the cx23885 driver and a problem with cx23885 data
structures.  (But it is the most likely scenario, IMO)
I just can't see how netup_ci_slot_status() get's called for your card.

Does 9600 baud help? (Just a guess.)
