This is on PAE, so you're in far deeper trouble than I could have caused:

pgd_cache = kmem_cache_create("pgd",
PTRS_PER_PMD == 1 ? pgd_dtor : NULL);

You've applied mingo's patch, which needs to check for PAE in certain
places like the above. Backing out highpmd didn't make this easier, it
just gave you performance problems because now all your pmd's are stuck
on node 0 and another side-effect of those changes is that you're now
pounding pgd_lock on 16x+ boxen. You could back out the preconstruction
altogether, if you're hellbent on backing out everyone else's patches
until your code has nothing to merge against.
