Robert's description of the mechanics we observed is accurate.

We discovered this regression in the oom-killer's behavior when
attempting to upgrade our system. The fraction of the system that
went unhealthy due to this issue was approximately equal to the
_sum_ of all other causes of unhealth, which are many and varied,
but each of which contribute only a small amount of
unhealth. This issue forced a rollback to the previous kernel
where we ~never see this behavior, returning our unhealth levels
to the previous background levels.
