Description Colin Percival 2003-12-06 09:40:16 UTC
  Large malloc-backed memory disks will cause 5.x systems to panic when they 
are filled.  This isn't documented anywhere.

Fix: Document the panic in mdconfig.8
mdconfig -a -t malloc -s 300M -u 0
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/md0 bs=1048576 count=300
<do anything which requires kernel memory>
