vboxNetFltOsInitInstance(): page allocation failure. order:5, mode:0x20

Reported by: Asn Owned by:
Component: network/hostif Version: VirtualBox 3.1.8
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux



a recent Gentoo bug report [1], showed that network code that leads to vboxNetFltOsInitInstance() spits various "page allocation failure. order:5, mode:0x20" errors in the kernel log [2].

Any ideas on what may be causing this?

If you need any further information, don't be shy to post on the Gentoo bugtracker or just comment here and I'll relay to the original bug reporter :)

Thank you :)

By the way, the original bug reporter tried disabling GSO, like bug #5260 suggests, but the page allocation failures keep happening:

Still unable to reproduce and we don't get many reports regarding this problem. This could be even a bug in the related Linux device driver.
