More info...

The Oops seems to be caused by a size mismatch that causes memset to write
over other variables in the stack... The following debug hack moved oops to
another point in the v4l1-compact code..

So memset(&tun2,0,sizeof(tun2)) seems to be overwriting btv->lock->wait_list:

err = drv(inode, file, VIDIOC_G_TUNER, &tun2);
if (err < 0) {
dprintk("VIDIOCGTUNER / VIDIOC_G_TUNER: %d\n",err);
The new oops, where there's another memset(&tun2,0,sizeof(tun2)):
