Subject[PATCH 2/5] oom: kill younger process first
This patch introduces do_each_thread_reverse() and select_bad_process()
uses it. The benefits are two, 1) oom-killer can kill younger process
than older if they have a same oom score. Usually younger process is
less important. 2) younger task often have PF_EXITING because shell
script makes a lot of short lived processes. Reverse order search can
detect it faster.
