possible deadlock in kmem_alloc (mode:0x50)

There is alot of errors in a few second like that and its always follow
by several "possible deadlock in kmem_alloc (mode:0x50)"

Whats does it means?

The error is on a production server, is it dangerous?

What shoud I do to fix it?

Some extra info:
Filesystem: XFS
Kernel: 2.6.9-1.667smp

Thanks in advance. I have been searching several days and I have found nothing .
