The specified maximum read size is SSIZE_MAX. You always have the option to return less.
If you set the prefetch buffer size to 1 GiB, then it will allocate 1 GiB regardless of what access does. This patch makes no difference to buffer size. You get similar issues with insanely large PTS delay values. And yes, the process may be killed by OOM killer. This is a very generic problem.
