LTS Ubuntu with -updates shouldn't have this sort of issue - this is,
frankly, unforgivable.

We need a new kernel urgently in -updates, and I'd expect serious
discussions within the kernel team to understand what has caused this
issue and avoid it reoccurring.

  "Out of memory" errors after upgrade to 4.4.0-59

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  I recently replaced some Xenial servers, and started experiencing "Out
  of memory" problems with the default kernel.

  We bake Amazon AMIs based on an official Ubuntu-provided image (ami-
  e6b58e85, in ap-southeast-2, from https://cloud-  Previous versions of our AMI
  included "4.4.0-57-generic", but the latest version picked up
  "4.4.0-59-generic" as part of a "dist-upgrade".

  Instances booted using the new AMI have been using more memory, and
  experiencing OOM issues - sometimes during boot, and sometimes a while
  afterwards.  An example from the system log is:

  I have a hunch that this may be related to the fix for,
  introduced in linux (4.4.0-58.79).
