AVL.6.2 discusses a replaceable OOM handler. We've written a simple
proof-of-concept that allows us to provide 'normal' memory limits for a
process, and take that into account when deciding which process to kill in
an out of memory situation.
There's simple a patch (for 2.6.0-pre11) to make the out_of_memory handler
replaceable from a module. A sample module is also provided - but it could
easily be extended to suite.
