I don't think it's the problem of our M_WAITOK implementation. You
could change the caller to use other kmalloc flag so that the system
will not panic; how to properly handle kmalloc failure in this case
may be difficult.
I realize this. However, we should avoid panicing if possible. So why
not print a warning ("allocated more than the limit") and continue? If
nothing happens, great! If we run out of memory, we still can panic later.
