    The overflow occured because the kernel was improperly calculating the
    overflow point.  The commit simply fixed the overflow calculation.  I
    also increased the number of slots available (since 5 slots is 
    ridiculously low).


I understood that phys_avail was being overflowed, but what confused me 
was there were already 5 slots (phys_avail[10]). I hadn't seen your 
commit, but from the diffs I understand the logic problem now. Thanks 
for all the help.
