    Sounds like bad memory to me. The only other report of this I've seen
    was at

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=115935

    and that machine didn't pass memtest86.

    Bad hardware is about the only way I can think of. If it was a random
    kernel memory scribble, you'd expect it to show up in other places too:
    the transaction struct is a very very long-lived struct, you wouldn't
    expect it to be the only place to show up slab corruptions.

    Cheers,
    Stephen
