Yeah, I think there's really no other issue. I'm not going to apply
more patches.

Right, it's that if someone does extend the ring buffer page size while
the system is about to go into OOM, it may be triggered to get killed
even though it's not the culprit of the memory problems. But again,
this is really pushing what happens in the real world. That's the
problem with stress test cases. What happens when it triggers something
that will never actually happen in normal environments, and the fix
just complicates everything for really no benefit.
