[CentOS] what to do about [abrt] full crash report kernel taint?

I have a machine with a recent install of centos
(2.6.32-220.2.1.el6.x86_64 kernel). It crashed 3 times this week, and
sent emails like the one below complaining about kernel taint. I've
gone back to a previous kernel to see if that helps, but otherwise I
don't know how to investigate this.  What should I do?

Here's stuff from the log and one of the emails:
