It means the kernel tried to deference a null pointer. This generates a page fault which can't be handled in the kernel- if it's running a user task (but in kernel space), it generally makes an "Oops" which (uncleanly) kills the current task and may leak kernel resources. If it's in some other context, e.g. an interrupt, it generally causes a kernel panic.
