OK, I have missed that. So then there must be a different source of the
page count volatility. Is it always the same file?

I think we can rule out memory reclaim because that depends on the page
lock. Is the stress test hitting on memory compaction? In other words,
are
grep compact /proc/vmstat
counters changing during the offline test heavily? I am asking because I
do not see compaction pfn walkers skipping over MIGRATE_ISOLATE
pageblocks. But I might be missing something easily.

It would be also good to find out whether this is fs specific. E.g. does
it make any difference if you use a different one for your stress
testing?
