Just try allocating space on hugetlbfs after running an active web server for a few hours.

I think the memory compaction patch is intended to fix that:
Mel ran some simple tests showing that, with compaction enabled, he was able to allocate over 90% of the system's memory as huge pages while simultaneously decreasing the amount of reclaim activity needed.
