I suspect this may be my mistake.
IN case you can reproduce it, please, try the patch below.

I think the message is pretty much self-explanatory. Kernel tried to
allocate the meatadata to track the swap metadata, and zone appears
exhausted. It is not the swap space shortage. Instead, this is kernel
zone used to track swap allocation shortage.

It is quite non-obvious how to automatically tune this limit, since zone
is allocated before swap is configured.
