    I've run the -12 test with vfs_cache_pressure=200 and now the -13 test
    with vfs_cache_pressure=10000. The OOM killer still kicks in, but the
    machine seems to be more usable afterwards and does not get totally stuck:

    http://nerdbynature.de/bits/2.6.39-rc4/oom/
    - messages-12.txt.gz & slabinfo-12.txt.bz2
    * oom-debug.sh invoked oom-killer at 01:27:11
    * sysrq-w works until 01:27:08, but got killed by oom

    - messages-13.txt.gz & slabinfo-13.txt.bz2
    * find invoked oom-killer at 08:44:07
    * sysrq-w works until 08:45:48 (listing jbd2/hda6-8), then
    my debug script got killed

    Thanks,
    Christian.
