What's the plan with the cgroup aware oom killer? It has been sitting in
the -mm tree for ages with no clear path to being merged.

Are you suggesting this patchset as a preliminary series so the cgroup
aware oom killer should be removed from the -mm tree and this should be
merged instead? If so, what is the plan going forward for the cgroup
aware oom killer?

Are you planning on reviewing the patchset to fix the cgroup aware oom
killer at https://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=153152325411865 which has
been waiting for feedback since March?
