Yeah, exactly my thinking as well. When we silence the TTM messages we
might miss those cases.

Additional to that other drivers using TTM might not have those messages

If TTM is to noisy we should use ratelimit and/or reduce the number and
size of the warning messages.

A simple "Warning, I ran out of memory during eviction!" should do.
