    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.
