I'm sorry if I miss something, "new_page" will be reused in !CONFIG_NUMA case
as you say, but, in CONFIG_NUMA case, it is allocated in this function
(collapse_huge_page()) by alloc_hugepage_vma(), and is not freed when memcg's
charge failed.
Actually, we do in collapse_huge_page():
if (unlikely(!isolated)) {
...
#ifdef CONFIG_NUMA
put_page(new_page);
#endif
goto out;
}
later. I think we need a similar logic in memcg's failure path too.

Thanks,
Daisuke Nishimura.
