We are getting a failure from __get_free_pages even with GFP_KERNEL
flag. It turns out that there is enough memory but not in the
free_areas in the "order" (or more) that we are requesting.
That's right, and the kernel doesn't guarentee that order > 1 requests
will be reliably obtainable in any way.
If you need large contiguous memory, use vmalloc or something similar.
