Changing the rules would be easy, but you would need to make the
accounting check for root vs non-root and keep track accordingly.
Admittedly not hard but not entirely pretty either.

I still contend the issues are not related. It would make more sense to
me to do resource limits to solve this problem - rlimits are something
Rik has on his TODO and supposedly easy to add to rmap.

That way people can use strict overcommit, rlimits, neither, or both to
meet their needs.
