I don't know which patch might have caused that. Is it always
getcfg-interface which dies? Seems to be a suse-only thing, and I
unfortunately don't have any test boxes which have it.

It seems wildly screwed up that we have a PageReserved() page with a pfn of
zero (!) which claims to be in a reiserfs mapping, only it isn't attached to a
reiserfs file. How the heck did that happen?

Nick, I think that printk needs updating for changed vm_operations methods,
btw (->fault?)

This puts a dark cloud over about 200 patches at present. It would be
great if you could perform a bisection search as per
http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/bisecting-mm-trees.txt.
I'd start out at fix-slab-corruption-running-ip6sic.patch then try
mm-fix-handling-of-panic_on_oom-when-cpusets-are-in-use.patch. It should
take six or seven hops.
