From: Michel Dänzer <michel.daenzer@amd.com>

Memory allocation failure should generally be handled gracefully by
callers. In particular, with transparent hugepage support, attempts
to allocate huge pages can fail under memory pressure, but the callers
fall back to allocating individual pages instead. In that case, there
would be spurious

 [TTM] Unable to get page %u

error messages in dmesg.

Reminds me that I wanted to better test this code path, so how did you 
triggered that?

Anyway patch is Reviewed-by: Christian König <christian.koenig@amd.com>.

Thanks,
Christian.

1. Enable zswap by writing 1 to /sys/module/zswap/parameters/enabled

2. Create enough memory pressure that the system starts hitting swap.
   E.g. in my case I think a full LLVM build does the trick.
   /sys/kernel/debug/zswap/pool_total_size should contain a non-0 value
   now.

3. Run the piglit gpu profile.
