I see Andi didn't reply to your question concerning what
struct he saw a 'flags' in.

Adding a flags word still costs a slot in mm_struct.

Adding a 'oom_notify' bitfield after the existing 'dumpable'
bitfield in mm_struct would save that slot:

unsigned dumpable:2;
unsigned oom_notify:1;

I won't rest till it's the best ...
