    Judging by your log it's not an OOM - page table corruption got caught by
    do_wp_page(), which means that handle_mm_fault() fails (surprise, surprise),
    which kills the process.

    Looks like a massive memory corruption - later it fscked you in pte_alloc()
    and then it screwed buffer cache lists.
