Hmm... I am a little concerned that with these changes actual usage will much
more than what we report in memory.usage_in_bytes. Why not move them to
non-reclaimable LRU list as unevictable pages (once those patches go in, we can
push this as well). I suspect the size of special pages is too short to affect
anything or are you seeing something very different?
