    Hit this strange issue recently.

    I'm on latest kernel version and I've seen multiple times this error occurs when I start a new KVM guest.

    At the time I have plenty of available memory.

    # free -m
                  total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
    Mem:          16012        5372         226          52       10413       10258
    Swap:          8191         516        7675
    Workaround is to drop the cache.

    # echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
