    KOSAKI, you don't read what I write. I didn't ever say that low memory
    killer makes any notifications, that's not what I was saying. I said
    that once we'll have a good "low memory" notification mechanism (e.g.
    vmevent), Android low memory killer would just use this mechanism. Be
    it userland notifications or in-kernel, doesn't matter much.
