Subject: Stack Trace. Bad?

[linux-raid was also emailed this same information]

I was testing some network throughput today and ran into this.
I should note that I've this motherboard has 2x MCP55 Ethernet and one
of them works fine and the other one gives lots and lots of frame
errors under load.

The following is only an harmless informational message.
Unless you get a _continuous_flood_ of these messages it means
everything is working fine. Allocations from irqs cannot be
perfectly reliable and the kernel is designed to handle that.
md0_raid5: page allocation failure. order:2, mode:0x20
