Thanks for testing! The patch that I proposed for you was a little more
conservative in terms of providing a bonus to root processes that aren't
using a certain threshold of memory. My latest proposal was to give root
processes only a 1% bonus for every 10% of memory they consume, so it
would be impossible for them to have an oom score of 1 as reported in your
logs.

I believe that KOSAKI-san is refreshing his series of patches, so let's
look at how your workload behaves on the next iteration. Thanks CAI!
