With the latest tree and the below diff, I can still OOM-kill a victim
process doing a large buffer_size_kb write:

I pulled your ftrace/core and added this:
+       /*
        i = si_mem_available();
        if (i < nr_pages)
                return -ENOMEM;
+       */

Here's a run in Qemu with 4-cores 1GB total memory:

bash-4.3# ./m -m 1M &
[1] 1056
bash-4.3# echo 10000000 > /d/tracing/buffer_size_kb
[   33.213988] Out of memory: Kill process 1042 (bash) score
1712050900 or sacrifice child
[   33.215349] Killed process 1056 (m) total-vm:9220kB,
anon-rss:7564kB, file-rss:4kB, shmem-rss:640kB
bash: echo: write error: Cannot allocate memory
[1]+  Killed                  ./m -m 1M

As you can see, OOM killer triggers and kills "m" which is my busy
memory allocator (it allocates and frees lots of memory and does that
in a loop)

Here's the m program, sorry if it looks too ugly:

Happy to try anything else, BTW when the si_mem_available check
enabled, this doesn't happen and the buffer_size_kb write fails
normally without hurting anything else.
