I'm still able to reproduce the issue under v3.8-rc2 with your patch
for toosleepy.

(As expected when blocked,) TCP send() will eventually return
ETIMEOUT when I forget to check (and toosleepy will abort from it)

I think this requires frequent dirtying/cycling of pages to reproduce.
(from copying large files around) to interact with compaction.
I'll see if I can reproduce the issue with read-only FS activity.

With 3.7.1 and compaction/THP disabled, I was able to run ~21 hours
and copy a few TB around without anything getting stuck.
