crash in __alloc_bootmem_core on SGI current cvs

the current cvs kernel crashes in __alloc_bootmem_core here:

        printk("%s, %d memset %p 0 %d\n", __FUNCTION__, __LINE__, ret, size);
        memset(ret, 0, size);
        printk("%s, %d\n", __FUNCTION__, __LINE__);
        return ret;

Output coming:

__alloc_bootmem_core, 230
__alloc_bootmem_core, 234 memset 81000000 0 36864

I guess this is really bogus as the ARCS MEMORY debug gives:

[0,a8748da0]: base<00000000> pages<00000001> type<Exception Block>

[5,a8749180]: base<00008800> pages<00007800> type<Generic Free RAM>            

Might this be the sgi/arc bootmem/memory.c doesnt alloc everything
or frees to much ?

     Why is it called "common sense" when nobody seems to have any?
