I'd propose a fairly simple solution: send a SIGURG signal to
whatever process has a signal handler for it installed.

This process could then do whatever it wants to, such as allocating
more swap, killing off an errant process or send an E-Mail to
the admin to go out and buy more RAM.

Policy is for userland.
