    | Nope. Any kernel can't. The thing is the system overcommits
    | memory (it allows applications to allocate more memory than the system
    | is able to handle).

    Okay, then whats the required minimum swap size that needed to avoid
    such crashes?

    In the case when the system is in the ram, quite funny to allocate a
    swap file on the ramdisk anyway...
