Have you got any more influence on the selection?

Which variant was applied for your example?

I assume that further software evolution will matter.

Does an article like “The ORCs are coming” (by Jonathan Corbet from 2017-07-20)
point information out which is also useful for this issue here?

Does your update suggestion contain still any additional error messages for
memory allocation failures?
