Somehow you managed to load both the bridge and the openvswitch module.
This won't work and will cause kernel panics (as you can see).

The newest version of Open vSwitch in Git prevents this from happening,
so you might want to upgrade.  Alternatively, I guess we will probably
release a v1.0.2 in a week or two that will include this fix too.
