    Subject2.2.18 - do_try_to_free_pages failed
    This is my first report of a kernel crash, so if there is more information 
    wanted, please let me know and I'll do my best to supply it.

    I'm running Mandrake 7.2 with a 2.2.18 kernel and GNOME, PIII 500 mhz,
    256MB ram, AIC789x SCSI on mobo, Fujitsu 18GB scsi HD, ATI video card.

    This evening, xscreensaver crashed with a message saying (roughly):

    "xscreensaver hypercube had(?) a SIGSEGV"

    I had to power down the machine and restart it. From /var/log/messages the
    last message before the reboot and the first message after the reboot are:

    Mar 6 16:35:32 osage kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for kswapd...
    Mar 6 17:13:04 osage syslogd 1.4-0: restart.

    2.2.18 has run for as long as 71 days on this machine (at which point I
    restarted it to include the Sangoma WANROUTER driver, which was NOT running
    at the time of the crash).

    I'll be glad to supply any additional info/files. Just let me know what's
