Subject[PATH] Trigger OOM handler through sysrq
The below patch allows you to trigger the OOM handler rather then the
generic SAK. This may very well be the wrong way to do things, but
I'm sure someone else will know the right way to do this. Apply this
if you want to try another way of bringing back a thrashing system.

Thanks,
-Justin
