We don't need to decide on one, you can provide and install your
own, if your apply my oom-killer-api-patch.

It's at: http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~ioe/oom_kill_api.patch

PS: Removed Linus from CC, because every change of MM has to be
approved by Rik first. Added linux-mm, because it's an MM issue.

PPS: We had an controversal discussion at linux-mm about this
last week. So look into the archives.
