Yes, I agree with you.

The initial motivation of hiding ENOMEM here is when reproducing the error,
the error code may change by system condition(more accurately memory condition),
after this patch the error code will be persistent. However, as you pointed out,
when we hit ENOMEM there would be a serious trouble, so in real life maybe we
cannot benefit from it. What do you think?
