[arch-general] out of memory while allocating z_stream

As of yesterday I cannot boot, regardless of whether I choose the 
regular or failback kernel from the boot loader.

I haven't been able to find anything on google, so I was hoping someone 
here might know what's going on.

Last time my system was up I installed updates including the latest 
kernel, and I ran e4defrag over the disk.
The computer is a ThinkPad T60, with a Core 2 Duo and 2GB of Ram.  I am 
running the i686 version of Arch Linux.
My boot loader is syslinux.

In the mean time I'm downloading a new copy of the Arch Install ISO (all 
my existing recovery disks are too old to chroot from), and I will try 
reinstalling the kernel.

Loading ../vmlinuz-linux... ok
Loading ../initramfs-linux.img...ok
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok
