Well the main problem is preempt_disable() itself. in_atomic() will
check preempt_count and return 1 if it is non-zero.

__get_free_page might sleep if GFP_ATOMIC is not set and therefore you
will see the splat when CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC is enabled. However, those
checks don't happen before the scheduler is setup. Hence why you don't
see the error on x86.
