"I've been unable to get the reporter to respond to basic debugging
inquiries about this.  Without that information, my best guess is that
it's a kmalloc failure that ordinarily would be a mm issue.  However,
given that there have been no other reports of this, I suspect it might
be some type of one off error.

I'd downgrade the severity to not reproducible and kill it unless any
further information comes along."
