    Wouldn't that cause a rather huge compatibility issue given that the
    current oom_adj works in a totally different way:

    ! 3.1 /proc/<pid>/oom_adj - Adjust the oom-killer score
    ! ------------------------------------------------------
    ! This file can be used to adjust the score used to select which processes
    ! should be killed in an out-of-memory situation. Giving it a high score
    ! will increase the likelihood of this process being killed by the
    ! oom-killer. Valid values are in the range -16 to +15, plus the special
    ! value -17, which disables oom-killing altogether for this process.

    ?

    Cheers,
    FJP
