Seems like your sw went in to Rommon mode also could be bad registry on process (CPU), Could you please post other logs?
try "quit", or a few control-C's. this looks like a session has been started from the msfc to the supervisor, hence the -sp prompt. (sp=switch processor)
Switch processor is normally engaged during startup (Rommon boot). It hands over to router as soon as boot has finished.

When in normal operation the switch processor takes control it means that a software crash has occured. Could be on supervisor, but in switch as well.

Look at your log files, and see what sub process caused this error.
