That's the kernel reporting that there was a segfault, it's not the kernel itself segfaulting.

You appear to have a cron job set up to run once every minute and whatever you are running is buggy and crashing. Look in /etc/cron* and also in /var/spool/cron/* for the jobs that are scheduled and find all the ones that are set to run once a minute and examine them. Now fix whatever is wrong with it ;-)
