If the "logread" process is blocked in write call or stopped by
pressing "CTRL+Z", the logd starts to buffer all the messages in
the write buffer. Since currently there is no limit in ustream
w.max_buffers, the logd consumes all the system memory and at a
point of time which triggers Out Of Memory.
The ustream write max_buffer of logd is limited with value 4096.
