GFP_ATOMIC.
We don't have a many thing for reclaiming.

I don't know why present is bigger than free + [in]active anon ?
Who know this ?

There are 258 pages in inactive file.
Unfortunately, it seems we don't have any discardable pages.
The reclaimer can't sync dirty pages to reclaim them, too.
That's because we are going on GFP_ATOMIC as I mentioned.

free : 1388KB min : 4020KB. In addtion, now GFP_HIGH. so calculation
is as follow for zone_watermark_ok.

1388 < (4020 / 2)

So failed it in zone_watermark_ok.
AFAIU, it's fairy OOM problem.
