The test kernel solves the issue in the same way as my own kernel earlier, i.e. we still seem to have a very slow running memory leak with this kernel. I'm also seeing this slow leak when I replace the in-tree i40e driver by an upstream version (2.3.4), so either it is unrelated or contained in both.

With the new kernel, free memory is continously decreasing at a high rate and the servers start swapping and finally OOMing services within days. With the 4.10 kernel, decrease of free memory is slower and stabilizes after a while. Latest kernel tested is linux-image-4.13.0-32-generic but the issue also affects older kernels from that series, tested back to linux- image-4.13.0-19-generic. No issue with linux-image-4.10.0-42-generic. The servers are running as OpenStack controller nodes using either Ocata or Pike UCA plus ceph. See attached graph for the memory behaviour.
