This proposition is very much like mine, but this doesn't include the
root-reserved memory block. It would be useful to have a small amount of
root-only memory, so that you could log in even if you have a process
which rapidly creates a memory-hogger processes.

As I noted before, reserving ~4 MB from swap isn't that much..
