    SubjectRe: WANTED: Re: VM lockup with 2.4.8 / 2.4.8pre8
    Why we are giving so big importance to root processes? Yes, they are
    important, but they are even more likely to flood our memory, because
    limits don't apply to them. I propose to just divide their badness
    by 2, not by 4.

    I also propose to half badness of processes with pid < 1000 - those
    processes are usually also important, because they are called during
    boot-time and they usually handle important system affairs. And
    because most of them are run by root, the previous behaviour will
    be restored, but with giving less badness to some non-root important
    processes, and more badness to later-run root processes, which are
    often less important.

    #define BITCOUNT(x) (((BX_(x)+(BX_(x)>>4)) & 0x0F0F0F0F) % 255)
    #define BX_(x) ((x) - (((x)>>1)&0x77777777) \
    - (((x)>>2)&0x33333333) \
    - (((x)>>3)&0x11111111))
    -- really weird C code to count the number of bits in a word
