it was not possible to get the early boot messages with the
kernel since the compiled in log buffer is too
small. So we installed as you suggested a more recent kernel with a bigger log buffer, I attach the dmesg
of that, and hope that the information in there is useful.
We will keep an eye on that server with the newer kernel
to see if the allocation failures appear again.

the server was running for a few without any more allocation
failures with kernel but at one point the server
stopped responding, it was still possible for a while to
get a login, and trying to kill some processes but that
didn't succeed. But after that even login was
no longer possible so we had to reset it.
I attach the call trace, I hope you can find out what is
the problem.
