    In order to fix a bug in the slab allocator I had to extend the 
    malloc_type structure.  This means that when you compile up a new
    kernel you have to be sure to recompile all your modules as well
    and install both a new kernel and new modules.  If you try to load
    an old module with a new kernel it will panic.
