There is the other case of fail order-0 fail.

In my test, most case are using camera. So, memory usage is increased momentarily,
it cause free page go to under low value of watermark.
If free page is under low and 0-order fail is occured, its normal operation.
But, although free page is higher than min, fail is occurred.
After fix routin for checking highatomic size, it's not reproduced.

I now develop smartphone is applied kernel-4.14. And I didn't checked current upstream kernel.
I thinks this symptom can be occurred the any platform that have use-case of memory intensive moment.
