freeze with 2.4.5-ac21

still hangs with ac21. mem trace attached.

recap: after boot, i log into vc/1 through vc/3 as regular users, in 1 I
do find / -name foo, in 2 I run basically ptr=malloc(192*1024*1024);
memset(ptr, 0, 192*1024*1024; while(1) sleep(1);

disk activity continues a while (shouldn't be much if any swap, 256mb
physical), then stops and system hangs (unresponsive to ctrl-c/input on
any terminal). However, on vc/1 and vc/2 the terminal echoes, on vc/3 and
higher it doesn't.

also, did someone mess with sysrq-t? I get two copies of the stack trace
for each process, didn't with ac16.
