Subject[patch 10/11 -mmotm] oom: avoid oom kill if no interruptible tasks
If there are no interruptible system tasks other than kthreads, no task
should be chosen for oom kill since they won't respond to the SIGKILL
anyway. Instead, we choose to simply fail page allocations if reclaim
cannot free memory and hope for the best.
