    If the oom killer kills a thing like init by mistake or init has a memleak
    you'll notice both problems regardless of having a magic for init in a _very_
    slow path so I don't buy your point.
    .
    For corretness init must not be killed ever, period.

    So you have two choices:

    o math proof that the current algorithm without the magic can't end
    killing init (and I should be able to proof the other way around
    instead)

    o have a magic check for init

    So the magic is _strictly_ necessary at the moment.
