swapper: page allocation failure. order:2, mode:0x20
followed by a stack trace
The thread requesting the memory then has the option of either terminating with an error, or requesting multiple smaller blocks instead. Normally, the latter happens.
This is normally transparent to the user, most memory allocation requests never print this message, but in some cases the calling thread requests that the system log a message in case of failure. But it is purely for informational purposes, and does not by itself indicate an error condition
Only if an allocation of order 0 (a single page) fails, or if the failed allocation is followed by an error message from the thread requesting the memory is the message a reason for concern.
