    Not when the trick of getting high order, returning left over pages
    is used. I meant just updating the GFP_COMPOUND code to always
    use number of pages instead of order so that it could deal with a compound
    where the excess pages are already returned. That is not actually that
    much work (I reimplemented this recently for dma alloc and it's < 20 LOC)

    Of course the full rewrite would be also great, agreed :)
