Subject[PATCH 8/9] ForTesting - Prevent OOM killer firing for high-order allocations
Date

Stop going OOM for high-order allocations. During testing of high order
allocations, we do not want the OOM killing everything in sight.

For comparison between kernels during the high order allocatioon stress
test, this patch is applied to both the stock -mm kernel and the kernel
using ZONE_EASYRCLM.
