Right.

Before eacd86ca3b036e55e172b7279f101cef4a6ff3a4
this used

info = __vmalloc(sz, GFP_KERNEL | __GFP_NOWARN | __GFP_NORETRY,

would it help to re-add that?

I don't know what "some limit" would be. I would prefer if there was
a way to supress OOM Killer in first place so we can just -ENOMEM user.

AFAIU NOWARN|NORETRY does that, so I would propose to just read-add it?
