master instability from Dec 6 to Dec 10

Anyone running a recent master built from kernel sources between Dec 6 and
Dec 10 should upgrade to the latest master ASAP.  Only a kernel built from
sources from this date range is effected.  Some of the contigmalloc work
appears to cause severe memory corruption.

The bug was introduced only in master on Dec 6th and was fixed in
fe63a898ce on Dec 10th.
