Sure.

I wonder if we can get rid of TIF_MEMDIE completely,
if we will count OOM victims on per-oom-victim-signal-struct rather than
on per-thread basis? Say, assign oom_mm using cmpxchg, and call
exit_oom_victim() from __exit_signal()? __thaw_task() can be called from
mark_oom_victim() unconditionally.

Do you see any problems with this approach?
