Subject: [PARISC] slub: fix panic with DISCONTIGMEM
From: James Bottomley <>
commit 4a5fa3590f09999f6db41bc386bce40848fa9f63 upstream.
Slub makes assumptions about page_to_nid() which are violated by
DISCONTIGMEM and !NUMA. This violation results in a panic because
page_to_nid() can be non-zero for pages in the discontiguous ranges and
this leads to a null return by get_node(). The assertion by the
maintainer is that DISCONTIGMEM should only be allowed when NUMA is also
defined. However, at least six architectures: alpha, ia64, m32r, m68k,
mips, parisc violate this. The panic is a regression against slab, so
just mark slub broken in the problem configuration to prevent users
reporting these panics.
