I think you need to solve the excessive kernel functioning rather than containing the problem.

The kernel will frequently use quite a bit of memory but unless you're doing a lot of low level stuff, the kernel doesn't/shouldn't be blowing through CPU cycles like that. What are you doing on that machine?
