Does the machine only have about 700M memory? I also find something
in the log file:

Node 0 DMA free:2772kB min:72kB low:88kB high:108kB present:15312kB..
lowmem_reserve[]: 0 674 674 674
Node 0 DMA32 free:*3172kB* min:3284kB low:4104kB high:4924kB present:690712kB ..
lowmem_reserve[]: 0 0 0 0
0 pages in swap cache
Swap cache stats: add 0, delete 0, find 0/0
Free swap = 0kB
Total swap = 0kB
179184 pages RAM ==> 179184 * 4 / 1024 = *700M*
6773 pages reserved


Note that the free memory of DMA32(3172KB) is lower than min watermark,
which means the global is under pressure now. What's more the swap is off,
so the global oom is normal behavior.


Thanks,
Sha
