This could be a matter of uptime, but the warning triggers on a thing
that is supposed to happen everywhere eventually. Let's fix it.

The eviction timestamp is from a monotonically increasing counter that
will eventually reach values high enough that the left-shifts for
memcg id and node id will truncate the upper bits.

The bucketing logic isn't supposed to prevent this truncation, it's
just making sure that the namespace of the truncated timestamp field
is big enough to cover the full range of actionable refault pages.

xa_mk_value() doesn't understand that we're okay with it chopping off
our upper-most bit. We shouldn't make this an API behavior, either, so
let's fix the workingset code to always clear those bits before hand.

Ahh!  Thank you!

Makes sense.  I'll just fold this in, if that's OK with you?

Sounds good to me, thanks.
