Sure, all of the above.

But so far you haven't told us if the database gave an "IO Error"
during the backup, or the backup software (whatever that is) did, or
the kernel did.

Sounds like the backup program ate something.

Showing us that oops would be useful.

Until we get some of that info, all we know is that there was an "IO
Error", and that could be as simple and basic as a disk block going bad.  
Perhaps the backup program couldn't cope with that IO failure and its
error recovery killed the file.  You just haven't given us enough
information for us to do any more than to guess.  Until your reference
to a kernel oops in your last email, there wasn't even enough to guess
whether this was a kernel or an application error.
