    Please base it upon my OOM-Killer-API patch.

    This will reduce your patch to an simple module (but you have to
    manage refcounting yourself!) and give the user a choice, which
    one to use.

    If someone provides an OOM-Handler himself, please use my API to
    allow better testing and comparing.

    PS: Of course it applies cleanly against test10 as well ;-)

    Thanks and Regards
