related oops in 2.4.17 and 2.4.19

I am running both a 2.4.17 and 2.4.19 vanilla patched with bproc. I have 2
oops traces from klogd, that appear to be related. I am not sure if this
is a bproc or kernel issue. The kernels have been running on Dell 1550
PIII Dual machines with 2GB ram and 2GB swap and IBM x330s with the same
setups. I have seen about 20 machines toss this same oops in the last few
days, all when under heavy load and memory pressure. After oopsing, the
machine will remain resonsive and can run processes, baring ps, top,
shutdown and reboot -- I am sure there are more that won't run :) I would
greatly appreciate any help -- I have almost 200 machines running these
kernels. The oopsing has not just started recently -- I have seen it all
along, but have never been able to get the decoded info from klogd, and it
is just now becoming a problem with so many machines oopsing.

Attached is one file with 2 oops reports from klogd.
