If you ever run into a page allocation error like this:

modprobe: page allocation failure. order:6, mode:0x8020

when modprobing modules, there is an easy fix that may help. Simply allocate more memory as user root:

/bin/echo 16384 > /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes

to ensure this setting sticks across reboots, place it in /etc/runit/1.local.

It solved my problem after removing and re-adding some dvb modules. Hat tip to the mythtv-wiki.
