Hello Rezki 

In a multi CPUs system, more than one CPUs may be offline, there are more than 5 pages,  and these offline CPUs may never go online again  or  in the process of CPUs online, there are errors, which lead to the failure of online, these scenarios will lead to the per-cpu krc page cache will never be released.

Thanks
