Yes, sorry, I forgot about this one... (you posted it no long ago).

Not a problem so far (but I don't like to use LD_PRELOAD at all, just a
personal preference).

Very good.

Well, I'd say this is the showstopper. We really need this. "Unlikely"
is not enough. Eventually memory will run out and the wrong page will
fault and we get a click. We have to be able to lock memory......

BUT, I think a userspace daemon that starts at boot time and protects
against lockups (rt_monitor) would be a very good thing to have.
