Subject[patch -mm 0/9 v2] oom killer rewrite
This patchset is a rewrite of the out of memory killer to address several
issues that have been raised recently. The most notable change is a
complete rewrite of the badness heuristic that determines which task is
killed; the goal was to make it as simple and predictable as possible
while still addressing issues that plague the VM.

Changes from version 1:

- updated to mmotm-2010-02-11-21-55

- when iterating the tasklist for mempolicy-constrained oom conditions,
the node of the cpu that a MPOL_F_LOCAL task is running on is now
intersected with the page allocator's nodemask to determine whether it
should be a candidate for oom kill.

- added: [patch 4/9] oom: remove compulsory panic_on_oom mode

- /proc/pid/oom_score_adj was added to prevent ABI breakage for
applications using /proc/pid/oom_adj. /proc/pid/oom_adj may still be
used with the old range but it is then scaled to oom_score_adj units
for a rough linear approximation. There is no loss in functionality
from the old interface.

- added: [patch 6/9] oom: deprecate oom_adj tunable

This patchset is based on mmotm-2010-02-11-21-55 because of the following
dependencies:

[patch 5/9] oom: badness heuristic rewrite:
mm-count-swap-usage.patch

[patch 7/9] oom: replace sysctls with quick mode:
sysctl-clean-up-vm-related-variable-delcarations.patch

To apply to mainline, download 2.6.33-rc8 and apply

mm-clean-up-mm_counter.patch
mm-avoid-false-sharing-of-mm_counter.patch
mm-avoid-false_sharing-of-mm_counter-checkpatch-fixes.patch
mm-count-swap-usage.patch
mm-count-swap-usage-checkpatch-fixes.patch
mm-introduce-dump_page-and-print-symbolic-flag-names.patch
sysctl-clean-up-vm-related-variable-declarations.patch
sysctl-clean-up-vm-related-variable-declarations-fix.patch

from http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/broken-out.tar.gz first.
