Pte swap entry seem to be clobbered. That suggests a deeper problem and
a memory corruption.
Thanks again for the feedback. I've gone with 4.11.0+ git head kernels
and last night rather than a lock-up I saw:
[40050.937161] mmap: chromium (6060): VmData 2148573184 exceed data
ulimit 2147483647. Update limits or use boot option ignore_rlimit_data.
[40051.183213] traps: chromium trap int3 ip:5642ccce7996
and the desktop session remained responsive.
The 2 GiB ulimit is preferable for me than having to rely on the OOM
killer, but I can run tests with ignore_rlimit_data later on to check
that the OOM killer still works rather than hitting some unforeseen
error on swap exhaustion.
