Yes, 16 pages is costly allocations which will fail without invoking the
OOM killer. But I thought this is an interesting case, for mempool
allocation should be able to handle memory allocation failure except
initial allocations, and initial allocation is failing.

I think that using kvmalloc() (and converting corresponding kfree() to
kvfree()) will make initial allocations succeed, but that might cause
needlessly succeeding subsequent mempool allocations under memory pressure?
