Of course I can tell the kernel version.

The NFS server is 3.10.0-862.14.4.el7.foreca.x86_64 where "foreca"
means we've applied a custom Samsung SSD TRIM patch, nothing else
different from regular CentOS / RHEL kernel.

The NFS client is 3.10.0-957.5.1.el7.x86_64.

The pfmemalloc problem happens at the server, not at the client.

The exact patches in this kernel may be a bit complicated to
determine, because RHEL apparently likes to maintain their own kernel
version. They do not have the SNMP counter even, which is why I opened
a bug report to RHEL Bugzilla. I have extracted source code, so if you
can tell a list of git commit SHA1 hashes that could fix the issue, I
can check manually whether they're there, and open bug reports to RHEL
bugzilla to have them backported if not there.

I at least see this in the exact kernel version I'm using:

static inline bool ixgbe_page_is_reserved(struct page *page)
return (page_to_nid(page) != numa_mem_id()) || page_is_pfmemalloc(page);
} ixgbe shouldn't be reusing pfmemalloc pages.
