Unhappy system crash


I came home one day to see that my Slackware 9.0 system had been shut down. I rebooted the system and checked the system log. Here is what I found.

I can tell that the culprit could be kswapd. What is this process used for and how can I fix this problem? This has happened more than once.

I believe kswapd is the kernel process that handles the swap partition or file. The swapping of virtual memory and such.
