By my reading of this function, the intent is actually to return 0
here and allow demand paging to work.  Of course, I've spent all of
twenty minutes staring at this function, so I defer to the maintainer.
I think you'd need to be running a make-memory-allocations-fail fuzzer
to hit this, so it's likely never been tested.
