Hi Mina,

Looking at the region_chg code again, we do a

resv->adds_in_progress += *out_regions_needed;

and then potentially drop the lock to allocate the needed entries. Could
anopther thread (only adding reservation for a single page) then come in
and notice that there are not enough entries in the cache and hit the
VM_BUG_ON()?
