    SubjectRe: Overcommit_memory logic fails when swap is off
    Hello there,

    After 2½ year I stumbled over this thread:

    As I can see, the patch never made it in 2.4.x, right?!
    So, I would like a diff - if still possible :-)

    I know it's been a while, but I'm stuck with a 2.4 kernel for my
    embedded device and have problems with the OOM...

    Best regards,
    Martin Egholm
