I think it would work but it would be preferable to find out why the
tail page has an order set in the first place. I've looked over
mm/page_alloc.c and mm/compaction.c a few times and did not spot where
set_private_page(page, 0) is missed when it should be covered by
clear_page_guard or del_page_from_free_list :(
