Your CC did not reference the problem that you were discussing, nor that
it is even easier to trigger an OOM without the shrinker. Memory
exhaustion due to the excess usage of surfaces from userspace is not a new
issuer. So what is the problem you have encountered and how does running
the OOM killer earlier fix the issue of triggering the OOM killer?
