SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/5] oom: kill younger process first
From
2011/5/20 KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com>:
> This patch introduces do_each_thread_reverse() and select_bad_process()
> uses it. The benefits are two, 1) oom-killer can kill younger process
> than older if they have a same oom score. Usually younger process is
> less important. 2) younger task often have PF_EXITING because shell
> script makes a lot of short lived processes. Reverse order search can
> detect it faster.
