It only seems to occur when I move the laptop quickly or if the computer gets bumped for some reason. I put a bigger HDD in the laptop, could that be the problem?

Does it happen when you start up in Safe Boot Mode? (Boot while holding the Shift key; it may take a while to start up) –  daviesgeek May 12 '12 at 18:53
Before even trying to attack the drivers, if you can reproduce the KP it would be worth running on a clean install of the OS from an external drive to rule out your current SW stack –  bmike May 12 '12 at 20:21

Did you try to reset the Apple SMC on your Mac ? It appears in the backtrace of the kernel panic, so it worth try it.

Moreover, the SMC manage the Sudden Motion Sensor (SMS) as said on the page :

Additional Information

The System Management Controller (SMC) is responsible for many low-level functions on Intel-based Macs.
These functions include:

  • Responding to presses of the power button
  • Responding to display lid opening and closing on portable Macs
  • Battery management
  • Thermal management
  • The SMS (Sudden Motion Sensor)
  • Ambient light sensing
  • Keyboard backlighting
  • Status Indicator Light (SIL) management
  • Battery status indicator lights
  • Selecting an external (instead of internal) video source for some iMac displays

The SMS is involved when your move your Mac rapidly as you said.

Hope this helps !
