    Not really. We could fix this by making the page freeing
    functions smarter and only free the pages we need.

    I just don't know if this is worth it for 0.5% of the
    allocations (and further more, since we allocate the
    1-page allocations directly from the cache when we're
    low on free memory, fragmentation isn't as bad as it
    used to be with the old VM).

    regards,

    Rik
