    I think the title "mm: serialize OOM kill operations" was probably a
    poor choice of words. It sounds like all I want to do is make sure
    tasks enter the OOM killer one-at-a-time. My goal is actually to
    prevent further OOM kill operations until the OOM kill in progress
    has caused the victim task to free its address space (i.e. clean out
    its mm_struct). That way we don't shoot more processes than necessary
    to resolve the OOM condition.
