> What you want is a combination of the two: a process turns off overallocation for itself, and in exchange, is made immune to the OOM Killer. I don't see the connection between these. Turning off overallocation just means that you get a different error handling API. It certainly doesn't stop you from running the system out of memory. Making a process immune from the OOM killer is clearly a root-level operation; all you have to do to force allocation is to touch pages after you allocate them, obviously not a root level sort of ability.
