Oh, yeah..  Fun stuff.

make -j all

start at 15:14
first OOM message at 15:15:48
first call trace at: 15:18:27

apache: page allocation failure. order:0, mode:0x1d2
Call trace:

(I can send the full logs of this if you're really interested)

but the system kept trying to compile.  load average was about 273. heh
And sure, gcc reported lots of internal errors because of the OOM killer.

I could still swap consoles around, and then decided to killall -9 make &
the system fully recovered, and I was able to continue compiling with a bit 
nicer-on-the-system "make -j 5 all"

So from that respect, I couldn't make 2.6.6 crash.
Unlike gds-2.6.7-r16, which crashed hard.

vanilla 267-rc[12] continues compiling...
