If you run your system in a sane configuration, the kernel should have swap somewhere it can use to evict the pages it'll need to hardfault the pages from the unwind section. It might be slow, but it'll work. If you run overcommit, there's no such guarantee, but if you run overcommit, why the hell are you complaining about OOM behavior?
