  1. I find it strange that firmware can produce a kernel panic, since, correct me if I'm wrong, firmware is supposed to be only used during startup and after log on it's replaced by OS X such as kernel extensions.

    For example, look what this article says:
    One common thread among external devices (and internal ones as well) with regard to kernel panics: Up-to-date firmware is key. Iterative updates to Mac OS X can introduce new conflicts with devices, and manufacturers are constantly scrambling to bring hardware drivers and firmware in line.
