    a reservation, unless all of the reservation's pages were free, the
    reservation was moved to the head of the partially-populated reservations
    queue, where it would be the next reservation to be broken in case the
    free page queues were emptied.  Now, instead, I am moving it to the tail.
    Very likely this reservation is in the process of being freed in its
    entirety, so placing it at the tail of the queue makes it more likely that
    the underlying physical memory will be returned to the free page queues as
    one contiguous chunk.  If a reservation must be broken, it will, instead,
    be the longest unchanged reservation, which is arguably the reservation
    that is least likely to ever achieve promotion or be freed in its entirety.
