I don't think the __func__ is particularly useful information. I would
also expect the name of the process to be more interesting than the PID.
And why is the ppid useful?

Wouldn't this message be more useful?

fork: Would overcommit system (pid:162 name:./consume-and-fork.out)

ie put it in dup_mmap() and use current->comm
