    Subject[patch] oom: do not dump task state for non thread group leaders
    When /proc/sys/vm/oom_dump_tasks is enabled, it's only necessary to dump
    task state information for thread group leaders. The kernel log gets
    quickly overwhelmed on machines with a massive number of threads by
    dumping non-thread group leaders.
