everyday? really? when did you last try this?

Saw the problem with my own eyes yesterday.

Relatively low amount of free RAM (like 64M out of 16G) and a oom killer
stack trace containing tcp_sendmsg + some vmxnet3 NICs.

Those RHEL kernels are outright broken then it comes to memory
management.

Well, this is a debian list...
