I only have logs since 2.6.31-rc7 and there is one oom-kill in 2.6.32-rc7
and then the kills in 2.6.32.2.

Can I somehow get the symbols without recompiling kernel?
I have the source tree with *.o files and other stuff which was created
during compilation.

I've also got the kill in 2.6.33-rc5, what do I have to do to get the
symbols?
Is "Load all symbols for debugging/ksymoops (KALLSYMS)" and
"Compile the kernel with frame pointers (FRAME_POINTER)" enough?
