Don't complain, build your own and test it ;-)

Apply my patch

http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~ioe/oom_kill_api.patch

and install your own OOM handler using install_oom_killer()
from <linux/swap.h>. It has all the needed documentation inline
that will be build along the kernel-api-book.

Have fun researching in this area.

PS: Applies cleanly since oom_kill.c exists and also against
2.4.0-test11-pre1.
