Subjectswapping and oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x201d2, order=0
Date

The current mm behaviour in 2.6, during physical memory exhaustion, expresses
itself as an oom-killing spree, while the kernel could have resorted to
swapping.

Is there a reason why oom-killing is currently preferred over swapping?

Thanks!
