I applied this to my test machine's kernel and rebooted. It hit the OOM
killer a few seconds after starting msgctl11 . Furthermore, it was not then
responsive to SysRq+b or anything else and had to have the magic button
pushed.

I then rebooted and ran it again, and that time it ran through one complete
iteration of the test and hit the oom killer on the second run. That time the
box survived and was usable afterwards. Running top afterwards, I see:

top - 17:12:19 up 4 min, 1 user, load average: 484.34, 372.52, 151.31
Tasks: 66 total, 1 running, 65 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.0%us, 0.2%sy, 0.0%ni, 99.8%id, 0.0%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 1000604k total, 69800k used, 930804k free, 536k buffers
Swap: 0k total, 0k used, 0k free, 6408k cached

I then ran msgctl11 again, and the box became unusable, though it would accept
SysRq keys.

I've attached all three OOM reports below. The first failed on an order 1
allocation, the second and third on order 0.
