I'm afraid it couldn't have. Bisection identified the "enable all
shuffling" patch, but the free area mis-accounting happened regardless
of shuffling being enabled. And if dropping the "enable all shuffling"
patch stopped the problem even before the misacounting fix was merged,
that's another confirmation.

Is it possible that the platform silently depends on large contiguous
areas without a proper CMA reservation, and the shuffling fragments
them? Or maybe the CMA reservation happens too late?
