Well Kernel Patcher Had Another Issue If Used With SnowLeopard

The error message you posted does not point to gma.c.

Do you have this issue on previous revisions? If you revert gma.c 
does this issue still exist.

Im Not an Expert but on Rev r2152 gma.c was updated that caused a 
lap HP 630 to Have The Above Error I Had Compiled and Used The 
Previous Revs
"Memory allocation Error Addr: 0xdeadbeef, size 0x0, File: 
c,Line: 171"
While This Error Happened I Just Had KernelPatcher Module In The 
Modules Folder But Then I Replaced All The Modules Voila It Worked 
Without a Problem

Also a Friend of Mine Reported That He Had Faced The Same Error on 
Snow While Using KernelPatcher Module I Advised Him To Remove it as 
Snow Doesn't Need it 

Please Take a Look At Comments to Know About His Issue

Please reproduce the error and repost the message that is stated
The message:

File: Modules c,Line: 171

error where malloc(0) was called, there is no file named 
"Modules c" (there is a modules.c however). Without the 
correct error message, the issue cannot be debugged.

The link you posted does have the same user reporting an error with 
"Modules c" at line 152, assuming this is in fact 
modules.c, this is due to the file on disk (the module) have a size 
of zero. I will add a check to have it gracefully error out in this 
case, however the issue is again due to the file not having a valid
