This is stupid - there's just no way we should have got within five miles
of out_of_memory() when there's 177MB free in ZONE_DMA32.

I can only think that the zonelists got set up wrongly, or the freelist got
damaged or something like that.

Yeah, I'm sitting on a fix for that - I have a large number of for-2.6.24
fixes which I need to launder through subystem maintainers.
