What we have is __getblk() -> __getblk_slow() -> grow_buffers() -> 
grow_dev_page() doing find_or_create_page() with __GFP_MOVABLE set. That 
path then eventually does radix_tree_preload -> kmem_cache_alloc() to a 
cache that has SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT set which implies __GFP_RECLAIMABLE 
(for both SLAB and SLUB). So we oops there.

I suspect the WARN_ON() is bogus although I really don't know that part 
of the code all too well. Mel?
