I'm seeing similar problems on older kernels (.24 up to .32).

<http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-mm/msg07808.html>

I didn't get any response at all, neither on linux-mm or lkml... Our
problems seem very similar, but I'm running 64bit and I have 8 gigs of
ram.

Personally I can avoid this by tuning down my TCP settings so TCP uses
less memory, but I don't think that workaround is very good, this
shouldn't happen. My machine also freezes up (pressing caps lock doesn't
work) sometimes, sometimes it just logs the error.
