This may help others to resolve the problem, it certainly seems to match 
my own situation.

It appears there is a memory leak in MD (RAID driver) in the 2.6.10 kernel

some more details can be found at :



The command "sort -rn +1 /proc/slabinfo | head -5" shows large amounts

that we are experiencing this problem.

Appears fixed for 2.6.11
