Actually, this is effectively what Anton's patch does, except with
Wanpeng's adjustment to use node_present_pages(). Does that seem
sufficient to you?
It does only cover the memoryless node case (not the exhausted node
case), but I think that shouldn't block the fix (and it does fix the
issue we've run across in our testing).
