    I'm not sure, but this sounds a bit similar to a problem I am seeing. Are
    you by any chance using the CFQ scheduler?! (elevator=cfq) If so, give
    elevator=as or elevator=deadline a go.

    The problem I'm seeing is that processes that allocate large amounts of
    memory, are OOM killed or cause swap storms.
