SubjectOops 2.4.15-pre1aa1

I came back from my Turkey Day weekend to the following, hand copied
but I beleive it is accurate:

__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0xf0/0)
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1f0/0)
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x70/0)

This system has 4G of memory and two processors. It was booted on
November 12th at about 10am and lasted until November 26 at about 5am.
I was usinmg the aa kernel as the vanilla kernel was freezing up the
system often with no Oops, and it provided some unwanted swapping.
The vanilla kernel never lasted more then a few days.

The syslog shows:

Nov 15 16:04:44 ps1 kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0xf0/0)
Nov 15 16:04:44 ps1 kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1f0/0)
Nov 15 16:04:44 ps1 kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x70/0)

but it lasted happily for days after that with nothing to report. The
mcrawler program is a inhouse program that does lots of network IO and
a good about of disk IO. It was running for like 5 days when the
system crashed.

I just upgraded to 2.4.15-pre9aa1. Is there a better kernel to try?
Might any more information be helpful.
