That's probably not enough. How about switching to kvmalloc and limiting
this drastically to e.g. 64K. I vaguely remember that some wise man said
that should be enough for everybody :)

Okay, let me post a V2 to see if there's any objection.

Thanks

I guess this approach does begin to make more sense
at least as a temporary stop-gap.

But does this actually prevent the crash in all cases?

size is in void* entry units, KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE is in bytes.
