Here are two patches that might to cure it (used to be in 
2.6.15-rc5-mm1 but the cure accepted for the workqueues was to use
alloc_percpu):

From: Christoph Lameter <clameter@engr.sgi.com>

The workqueue structure can grow larger than 128k under 2.6.14-rc2 (with
all debugging features enabled on 64 bit platforms) which will make kzalloc
for workqueue structure entries fail.  This patch increases the maximum
slab entry size to 256K.
