The message here even tells you what the problem is. The page
was marked Uptodate at the time that it was allocated. There aren't
any other flags that alias Uptodate, so somebody is failing to clear
the Uptodate bit when they ought to.

Also note that this is in the allocation path; this flag isn't checked
at free. But it is cleared on free, so someone's stomping on page->flags
after they're freed. I suggest enabling more debugging code.
