    I bet zone->all_unreclaimable is one of the main issues here as Andrea notes.

    A simple "fillmem" works for me - the OOM killer kills the hog and the bash
    which its being ran from. Have you tried that?

    If you fire up a few fillmem's at the same time I bet you'll see the problem in a
    greater degree.
