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.
