comment Recover a lost NTFS partition on the cheap?
I used testdisk to successfully recover a NTFS partition. I had used photorec first, it found a lot of files, but obviously cannot find the disk directory layout or the filenames. N.B. you cannot put more than 65536 files in a FAT32 directory.

comment oom-killer killing processes despite having plenty of free swap
Only in kernel modules can alloc pinned memory. All of your memory allocations causing you grief are in the kernel. None of the available swap space is being utilized: see Free swap = 151691424kB vs total swap. I would first identify and eliminate as culprits any 3rd party drivers you might have. Then look at drivers which move large amounts of data, disk and network. What are you doing on your system that is moving large amounts of data?
