Sure. This shouldn't really trigger, but it is true that if something
unexpected happens then it is likly to flood the log so _ONCE is safer.

I will wait for others to comment before I send the official patch.
To be completely honest I am not super happy about this way of handling
stuff, but considering the level of brokenness this seems like the
safest option. Especially when nobody really want to use the kernel
memory hard limit AFAIU.
