SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/5] Fix oom killer doesn't work at all if system have > gigabytes memory (aka CAI founded issue)
Hello,

Have tested those patches rebased from KOSAKI for the latest mainline.
It still killed random processes and recevied a panic at the end by
using root user. The full oom output can be found here.

Cheers,
CAI Qian
