Yes, but probably not correct.

Linux undos the partial grant on failure, it also handles the
special status GNTST_eagain (-12) where it retries individual pages
that failed several times with exponential backoff. This status
is returned for pages that are paged out.

No idea why we get the general error instead of a more specific one.
