Ok, it is official. I can't read. All my fault. Brown paperbag time.

This should fix it:

diff --git a/fs/ntfs/malloc.h b/fs/ntfs/malloc.h
--- a/fs/ntfs/malloc.h
+++ b/fs/ntfs/malloc.h
@@ -45,7 +45,7 @@ static inline void *__ntfs_malloc(unsign
if (likely(size <= PAGE_SIZE)) {
/* kmalloc() has per-CPU caches so is faster for now. */

+ return kmalloc(PAGE_SIZE, gfp_mask & ~__GFP_HIGHMEM);
/* return (void *)__get_free_page(gfp_mask); */
if (likely(size >> PAGE_SHIFT < num_physpages))
