So your klogd tried to interpret the trace and screwed it up. Then
ksymoops tried to interpret klogd's output and screwed it up.

Could you please change you init scripts so `klogd' is
started with the `-x' option and then restart your logging
daemons? There's a reasonable chance that if you do this
your klogd will segfault and stop working when it sees the
trace - I'm not sure if Debian have fixed this one.

Alternatively, if you still have that kernel,

cd /usr/src/linux
gdb vmlinux
x/10i 0xc01e5be0
x/10i 0xc02200d4
x/10i 0xc012bb44
x/10i 0xc01288ad

That should (finally) tell us where the allocations are occurring.
