right. As I've said we can introduce iterator helper to skip the subtree
but I suspect it will not make much of a difference.

I do not see why. Tasks are free to come and go and you only know at the
time you are killing.

I didn't spend too much time on it. I merely wanted to point out my
thinking more specifically than the pseudo code posted earlier. But this
should be ok, because that would mean that either all tasks are
OOM_SCORE_ADJ_MIN (eligible = 0) or there is a inflight victim (eligible
= -1). Anyway the initialization should go inside the tree walk

Well, this is not about the amount of code but more about the clear
logic implemented at the correct level. It is simply much easier when
you evaluate the killable entity at one place rather open code it.

But as I've said nothing I would want to enforce.
