Apply my OOM fix. Right now the MM subsystem is screwed up since kswapd
start running all the time when Linux gies near OOM.

oom-11 is the latest update so far (patches before are buggy btw).

Apply it to 2.1.125 and your machine will be rock stable.

Try with my patch applyed and you will see. In the stock kernel when there
is no swap the kswapd-deadlock is still more effective since kswapd never
schedule() due wait_for_io() and so it really load every available CPU
