This is the same problem.

Note that the build is not and never was flaky,
it does 100% determinisitically fail on Loongson
buildds and succeed on Octeon buildds.

Jiaxun Yang discovered this weekend that CeilingOnPageSize is wrong for 
Loongson which has 16 kB pagesize and this matches when the problems 
started in 2.28.1, but unfortunately fixing this does not seem to fix 
all problems.
