Hmm. Since memory allocation is first tried with GFP_ATOMIC set and upon
failure retried in background, this seems like a situation which might
happen during normal use. If that already indicates a severe problem,
why retry in background at all?
It should be tried in the background first at 70% and only when
that fails would we hit the 100% case and then we will try it
with GFP_ATOMIC. If that fails then the insertion will fail.
