Apply the latest patchs to your system, you need to try  at least patch 138324-02.
I would apply the Recommended Patch Clusters.
also have a look at:


Could you give me some advice why you think the bug ID 6368155 is relevant to my case?
If you could explain more it would be helpful.

looks like the kernal having trouble with  px0 device, it could be a device driver bug, can you read the README file
for patch 138324-02.
I would apply the Recommended Patch Clusters, you need to keep your system up-to-date when possible.
