quick git grep "define *THREAD_SIZE\>" arch says that there is no such
architecture.

I guess there were no other tasks in the same group (except for the
parent shell), right? I am asking because this should trigger memcg-oom
but that one will usually pick up something else than the fork bomb
which would have a small memory footprint. But that needs to be handled
on the oom level obviously.
