SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/5] oom: select_bad_process: check PF_KTHREAD instead of !mm to skip kthreads

Again, the question is whether or not the fix is rc material or not,
otherwise there's no difference in the route that it gets upstream: the
patch is duplicated in both series. If you feel that this minor issue
(which has never been reported in at least the last three years and
doesn't have any side effects other than a couple of millisecond delay
until unuse_mm() when the oom killer will kill something else) should be
addressed in 2.6.35-rc2, then that's a conversation to be had with Andrew.
