Good point.  However, why is it failing?  According to the dump, there are 28 8k pages available.

>From doing more testing yesterday, I found that this error is also coming up from the SATA driver as well (sil24).  Again with those errors, it fails allocating a page of order 0, when there are a few hundred of those available.  What is up with the VMM?  Why are pages failing to allocate when they are available?

Thanks,
