Like, say, Red Hat:

$ ls -l /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Jun 14 18:58 /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory
$ uname -a
Linux stinky.hoopy.net 2.4.20-20.1.1995.2.2.nptl #1 Fri May 23 12:18:31 EDT 2003 i686 
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

(This is a Rawhide kernel, but I think that control has been
in stock RH kernels for some time now.)
