    Yeah, it didn't seem related, and the first dump I posted didn't trigger
    that badness.

    Just FYI, I've merged up the patch that adds support and it is in the
    latest development snapshot of libhugetlbfs:
    Beyond the counters case, I saw one other issue on s390 (haven't
    confirmed if it happens anywhere else), the icache-hygiene test, when
    run manually a few times, will fail every so often claiming that one of
    the mmap()s returned ENOMEM. I haven't had time to track that down yet,
    but it might be because of the address space layout and the size of the
    hugepage on s390.
