Fortunately in -mm we can make this BUG go away by setting
CONFIG_DEBUG_VM=n.

But in 2.6.18-rc1 that's a simple BUG_ON().

I don't understand that question, sorry. Right now, I'm inclined to drop
the patches:

reduce-max_nr_zones-remove-two-strange-uses-of-max_nr_zones.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-fix-max_nr_zones-array-initializations.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-make-display-of-highmem-counters-conditional-on-config_highmem.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-make-display-of-highmem-counters-conditional-on-config_highmem-tidy.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-move-highmem-counters-into-highmemc-h.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-page-allocator-zone_highmem-cleanup.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-use-enum-to-define-zones-reformat-and-comment.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-use-enum-to-define-zones-reformat-and-comment-cleanup.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-make-zone_dma32-optional.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-make-zone_highmem-optional.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-remove-display-of-counters-for-unconfigured-zones.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-remove-display-of-counters-for-unconfigured-zones-s390-fix.patch
reduce-max_nr_zones-fix-i386-srat-check-for-max_nr_zones.patch

It's a question of whether the runtime gain merits the additional developer
load. Hard call.
