Looking through the slub code, it seems to be making invalid
assumptions. All of the node stuff is dependent on CONFIG_NUMA.
However, we're CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM (with CONFIG_NUMA not set): on the
machines I and Dave Anglin have, our physical memory ranges are 0-1GB
and 64-65GB, so I think slub crashes when we get a page from the high
memory range ... because it's not expecting a non-zero node number.
