2.2.7 OFED iSER feature causes Out-Of-Memory error on Oracle Linux 6

An Oracle Linux 6 system with the oracle-ofed-release packages installed and an iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA) target configured, hangs and generates an Out-Of-Memory error when the initiator logs into the iSER target disk. The login fails and the target system hangs. The following error is displayed on the remote console:

Out of memory: Kill process ...

The cause is under investigation and there is no known workaround at this time. (Bug ID 22230403)
