I would realy much rather see we limit the amount of memory reserves oom
victims can consume rather than build on top of the current hackish
approach of limiting the number of tasks because the fundamental problem
is still there (a heavy multithreaded process can still deplete the
reserves completely).

Is there really any reason to not go with the existing patch I've
pointed to the last time around? You didn't seem to have any objects
back then.
