I'll have to try and get around to that soon - I'm currently busy with some
various work and can't afford the time just yet :/.

Also, I just realized that I copied lkml and scsi without providing any useful
context. Kernel is 2.6.15-ck1 with the Marvell sk98lin patch and (barf)
nvidia.ko. I noticed after having the OOM killer make its rounds a few times
that the slab layer was eating in excess of 600MB.

config.gz attached. I'd also like to note that I've been getting this in my
ring buffer when attempting to burn CD's on a PX-716A:

...but I don't think this is directly related, because this has been happening
since at least 2.6.13 iirc. Just being thorough.

Apologies to lkml & scsi for the brief/confusing earlier message.
