    __alloc_pages() should definitely not to loop forever but it should fail
    the allocation instead. If it doesn't right now that is yet another bug,
    at least with the 2.4 memory management design where we don't know if
    there is memory available or not when we do the allocation. I'd really
    appreciate if you could re-post this strictly necessary localized fix, I
    will definitely agree about that one.
