SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/4] signal: oom_kill_task: use SEND_SIG_FORCED instead of force_sig()
2012/2/10 Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>:
> Change oom_kill_task() to use do_send_sig_info(SEND_SIG_FORCED)
> instead of force_sig(SIGKILL). With the recent changes we do not
> need force_ to kill the CLONE_NEWPID tasks.
>
> And this is more correct. force_sig() can race with the exiting
> thread even if oom_kill_task() checks p->mm != NULL, while
> do_send_sig_info(group => true) kille the whole process.
