Ok. I am also able to see this slab corruption occurring on my machine. I can
get away with the problem if I disable cachefs support.

Infact, I can reproduce the problem if I boot capture kernel normally through
BIOS with commandline "mem=64M". Looks like it is generic problem and not
associated with kexec/kdump. Cachefs might be doing some corruption.
