This will be an attempt to transfer an entire file -- 139264 will be the
entire file size of something, probably an executable it's paging in.

I saw this before -- I can't remember what caused it -- the "bad chunksize"
is, I think, because it's not power-of-2.  The cause will be in the UVM
readahead code.

I could swear I fixed at least one cause of this already.
