One idea we had to prevent this in the future is to configure the OOM killer to reset the system if the kernel uses more than a certain amount of memory. (Reset is better than hang for our purposes.) Is there any way to find out how much memory the kernel is using? I don't see anything in /proc, but maybe something internal that isn't currently exported?

How about /proc/slabinfo ?
