Subject: Re: [External] Re: vmscan: Reclaim unevictable pages

[You were asked to use a reasonable quoting several times. This is
really annoying because it turns the email thread into a complete mess]

Not really. You are observing an unexpected behavior of the page reclaim
which hasn't changed for quite some time. So I find more probable that
your non-vanilla kernel is doing something unexpected. It would help if
you could track down how does the unevictable page get down to the
reclaim path. I assume this is a CMA page or something like that but
those shouldn't get to the reclaim path AFIR.
