I'm closing this as unreproducible for now. If it happens again, please shout.
Comment 2 Jacek Luczak 2011-03-23 14:21:12 UTC
Got same issue with plain 2.6.37. Can't really reproduce it as hunted this down for the first time but I suspect that same have happened a day before on two different hosts. Both are under huge load so this might be a key. Got a screenshot from iLO a bit mixed with top output.

Another two hosts running vanilla 2.6.37 died in the night due to same issue. Please reopen.

Clean screenshot from last crash.
Comment 7 Florian Mickler 2011-04-17 16:18:35 UTC
Is this still an issue in 2.6.38?
Comment 8 Jacek Luczak 2011-04-19 09:09:28 UTC
Did not tested that on 2.6.38. Might be hard as this is triggered by production CI system. For sure I can confirm the problem is in huge number of processes running which cause a load above 100.
