Bug#410933: alpha: Could not allocate X bytes percpu data

I've also received private requests for this bug to be fixed, so I looked
into it a bit.

Digging around a bit shows
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-alpha/2006/12/msg00030.html> as the message
explaining exactly what the subsequent error is.  I'm not sure that the
relocation error affects all modules, though -- perhaps applying this patch
would be of /some/ benefit to users of SMP kernels, even if it doesn't fix
the problems with all modules?  Andrew's post mentions problems with ipv6,
and /references/ an older post reporting problems with xfs, but has anybody
tested that e.g., xfs is still broken?

Norbert, do you have any further thoughts on this?
