Hmmmm... it seems like the percpu allocator failed to allocate space
for a new chunk in the vmalloc area. Looking through the config.
Hmmm, w/ 3G split, there should be enough vmalloc area. Strange.
Does kernel parameter "percpu_alloc=page" make the machine boot? If
so, can you please post the output of dmesg right after boot?
