I checked.  My current GNU Mach source tree working copy was not the most
recent one, so I couldn't notice.  It's the other way round: GNU Mach
upstream has this patch by Samuel Thibault (CCed), which was installed to
fix another problem:

2007-09-03  Samuel Thibault  <samuel.thibault@ens-lyon.org>

        * kern/zalloc.c (zget_space): Align zalloc_next_space again after
        calling kmem_alloc_wired (which may sleep).

I get a ``panic: zalloc: zone objects exhausted''.

Steven: Sorry for having kept you busy with this issue!  Please try a
``cvs update -r gnumach-1-branch -D 2007-09-02'', rebuild the kernel and
confirm that the resulting one works for you.

For your information: you can also run a ``make gnumach.stripped.gz'',
which will yield a file `gnumach.stripped.gz'.
