Subject[PATCH 4/5] oom: don't kill random process
CAI Qian reported oom-killer killed all system daemons in his
system at first if he ran fork bomb as root. The problem is,
current logic give them bonus of 3% of system ram. Example,
he has 16GB machine, then root processes have ~500MB oom
immune. It bring us crazy bad result. _all_ processes have
oom-score=1 and then, oom killer ignore process memory usage
and kill random process. This regression is caused by commit
a63d83f427 (oom: badness heuristic rewrite).

This patch changes select_bad_process() slightly. If oom points == 1,
it's a sign that the system have only root privileged processes or
similar. Thus, select_bad_process() calculate oom badness without
root bonus and select eligible process.

Also, this patch move finding sacrifice child logic into
select_bad_process(). It's necessary to implement adequate
no root bonus recalculation. and it makes good side effect,
current logic doesn't behave as the doc.

Documentation/sysctl/vm.txt says

oom_kill_allocating_task

If this is set to non-zero, the OOM killer simply kills the task that
triggered the out-of-memory condition. This avoids the expensive
tasklist scan.

IOW, oom_kill_allocating_task shouldn't search sacrifice child.
This patch also fixes this issue.
