It's a theoretical problem (which are explicitely ruled out by stable rules)
because if you ever see user space malloc() returning NULL the system is likely
already randomly killing your processes in OOM, including eventually perf.
I can see the value of shutting up coverity though, but that's not something
that needs to be in stable.
