SubjectCouldn't allocate an sk_buff (2.0.4)

For the first time ever, I've started to see allocation problems
with recent linux versions. Below is the output of 'uptime' 'cat
/proc/version' and a trimmed 'dmesg'.

I have 8Mb of RAM and 24Mb of swap. The errors below took place
during a kernel compile (which was 'nice'd by 5) that overlapped some fast
network I/O (ftp over local LAN). I really doubt I ran out of swap though.
Perhaps the system couldn't swap fast enough?

Any clues would be appreciated.
