This bug was fixed by commit 781b2ba6eb5f22440afac9c79a89ebd6e3674a60
entitled "SLUB: Out-of-memory diagnostics" by Pekka Enberg
<penberg@cs.helsinki.fi> and dated Wed Jun 10 18:50:32 2009 +0300.

The fault occurred because when CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG was set, many of the
memory allocations for wireless buffers were increased from O(0) to
O(1) causing memory fragmentation, and eventually there were no
remaining O(1) fragments. This problem is unlikely to affect most
users as none of the distos turn on the above debug option.

This bug should be marked "closed with patch".

Larry
