No way for the kernel to tell if this is what you want or not. It will start
killing applications if the system runs out of memory. However, if you have
plenty of memory, what should it do? Start killing processes that are "too
busy"? I've put machines into this state on purpose. I wouldn't want the kernel
to start killing things. There's no danger in it, so why start randomly booting

This is a non-bug. Kernel didn't do anything wrong. If you want to control this
sort of things, start looking at process limits (the kernel respects them, but
you have to set them up per user or per process).
