Well the purpose of the kernel isn't to provide an idiot filter,

The lesson learnt here? Panic makes for poor decisions. I sent one
patch what looked great at the time but have found out in the last
few hours that it really sucks. While figuring this out for sure, I
have to wait looking at a screen to painfully slowly update. To
help the waiting, I found some beer, it's the Irish thing to
do. Wonder what the rest of ye do.
Or to say in a more sarcastic way: the most visible effect the
extra code you have to write for making things OOM-safe will be
that due to higher memory/address space consumption the OOM
situation will be coming earlier then without it.
Yes, I realize it's ugly voodoo magic but dammit, it used to work!
