I think I know why.
It's been a while since I took a look, but I compared the posted
patchset with my newest patchset I had ready and I saw I made some
changes with regard of hugetlb pages.

I will be taking a look, although it might be better to re-post the
patchset instead of adding a fix on top since the changes are a bit
substantial.

Thanks for reporting.
