Unfortunately, we didn't have a slot to discuss the oom and forkbomb.
So, personally, I talked it with some guys(who we know very well :) )
for a moment during lunch time at LSF/MM. It seems he doesn't feel
strongly we really need it and still I am not sure it, either.

Now most important thing is to listen other's opinions about we really
need it and we need it in kernel.

And I have a idea to implement my one in automatic, too. :)

Thanks for your interest.
