Which .config settings are necessary? I tried to use it (uniprocessor, no debug options enabled), but the compilation failed. 2.6.18-rc4 kernel. All 7 patches applied. And: Are you sure that the slabifier works on vmalloc ranges? The code uses virt_to_page(). Does that function work for vmalloc on all archs?

The lack of virt_to_page() on vmalloc/mempool memory. always prevented the slab allocator from handling such memory.
