Which brings me to something i wanted to ask you.
Where is the no-overcommit switched on? I could not find it via grep in etc.
Is it a compile time default from the kernel? Or is there some setup

Some automatic swapon if swapfile or partition is found on SD might be 
my first contribution to openmoko... :)
