Dec 3 09:48:05  VM: killing process apache2

I note that this is a slightly different killer than the OOM

I manually killed the build at 09:57:58, as it had not yet crashed the
machine
in the past 15 minutes, yet gds-267-r12 will crash and burn within 2 minutes

 
OOMkiller 'feels' more aggressive in -rc2, but still doesn't have the
instability
that gds-267-r16 has
