As discussed with Norman today in the morning, we can add the following
to the road map:

For base-nova several extensions are planned to cope better with (or
better: to avoid) situations where the kernel runs un-controlled
out-of-memory. Some of the goals are

 * to limit the amount of kernel memory a process can consume
 * to adjust the limit based on some policies dynamically
 * ideally to have a kernel memory allocator per protection domain
 * to not hold/deadlock the whole kernel if one process runs out-of-memory

Several experiments already look promising, so we're expecting here
changes this year to base-nova of Genode.
