Thanks for the tip! I'll take this into account in the new design.
Just thinking out loud... AFAIU oom_lock is there to protect against
multiple concurrent out_of_memory calls from different contexts and
prevent overly-aggressive process killing. For my purposes when
reaping memory of a killed process we don't have this concern (we did
not initiate the killing, SIGKILL was explicitly requested). I'll
probably need some synchronization there but not for purposes of
preventing multiple concurrent reapers. In any case, thank you for the
feedback!
