    Other mm guys already accepted but sorry I can't understand your point
    since I am not familiar with virtio.

    Now oom_killer_disabled is used by only hibernation and hibernation
    freezes processes so page fault shouldn't happen.

    Now are you using oom_killer_disabled in virtio?
    Could you elaborate use case ?

    Kind regards,
