Michal suggested using ratelimit, the standard solution.

My understanding is that this situation happens when the system is
misconfigured and unusable without manual intervention. If
the user is able to see what the problem is then we are good.

You talk about interactivity but who asked for this?
IMHO, if system ends in OOM situation, it would need to get
restarted in most cases anyway. Then people have a chance
to fix the configuration after the reboot.

Best Regards,
Petr
