compiling a Loongson3a kernel with CONFIG_SMP=y on lemote's official
kernel (branch master, 7a7d4e7770) shows error messages during boot up
and in kernel log:

[ 24.253906] modprobe: page allocation failure: order:0, mode:0x2000d1
[ 24.402343] CPU: 3 PID: 135 Comm: modprobe Not tainted 3.15.0-rc5-dk2+ #3
[ 24.992187] Call Trace:

[ 24.992187] [<ffffffff80339ee8>] new_slab+0xe0/0x348

I did not see these kinds of errors with same config and CONFIG_SMP
disabled. This is still with the original PMON that came installed with
the Xinghuo. I cross-compile all my kernels with with gcc 4.7.3.

Full output of dmesg attached below.

You can find the kernels in question, including kernel config here [1]
(-dk1: without SMP, -dk2: with SMP).

Despite these errors, the system did not immediately crash. However I
did not allow it to boot beyond the initrd for concerns about possibly
corrupting my system.
