    But you can load a module before, "MOD_INC_USE_COUNT;" it and
    install a new oom_killer (or better: OOM-Handler) that suits your
    needs.

    You can even install one, which restores old behavior (just
    panic()) to be backward-BUG-compatible ;-)

    All you need, is to apply my patch[1]. It applies cleanly against
    test10-pre1 an test10-pre2.

    I'll soon provide an example module, which uses my OOM-killer API
    so install a new OOM killer.
