Subjectkernel BUG at page_alloc.c:176, 2.4.0test9pre7

I got a nice bug printout followed by a hard lock earlier today. Had to
write the bug output down by hand so it could be off but I tried hard to
get it right. This was triggered while I was untarring some source code.
The computer hadn't been up long (about ten minutes) and wasn't running
much else besides tar. As I mention in the subject, the bug was at

This computer is a K6-2 350 with 128Mb ram and 150Mb swap, and the kernel
is unpatched except for pre7. If anybody needs more info please just ask.

From ksymoops:
ksymoops 2.3.4 on i586 2.4.0-test9. Options used
-v /usr/src/linux/vmlinux (specified)

Line 176 is the BUG(); below:

static inline struct page * expand (zone_t *zone, struct page *page,
unsigned long index, int low, int high, free_area_t * area)
unsigned long size = 1 << high;

while (high > low) {
if (BAD_RANGE(zone,page))



posisanic, paw-sih-SAN-ick, noun. 1. POS ISA NIC. 2. Why my computer and my
cable modem don't get along very well.
