Well your host OS has run out of memory, so pretty much everything
will be fubar at this point. If it can't even fork() then there's
not much libvirt until this is resolved. libvirt tries to handle
OOM scenario but there's some places we might have missed, but
even so, the best libvirt can do is to drop all further requests
as gracefully as possible.
