Looks like process_zones() got a kmalloc_node() failure and then crashed in
the recovery code.

This:

--- a/mm/page_alloc.c~a
+++ a/mm/page_alloc.c
@@ -2814,6 +2814,8 @@ static int __cpuinit process_zones(int c
return 0;
bad:
for_each_zone(dzone) {
+ if (!populated_zone(zone))
+ continue;
if (dzone == zone)
break;
kfree(zone_pcp(dzone, cpu));
_
might help avoid the crash, but why did kmalloc_node() fail?
