    just wondering, could linux implement a 'hard' memory alloc policy? a la
    solaris/Tru64/and probably many other unices.. ie when memory is
    allocated to an app, it's /guaranteed/ to be there?

    also, what is the difference between overcommit_memory set and not
    set. I understand from the doc's that when set it's 'free love man' as
    far as memory goes, but what are the restrictions put in place when ==
    0?

    regards,

    Paul Jakma.
