    oom, oom_reaper: try to reap tasks which skip regular OOM killer path · 3ef22dff
    Michal Hocko authored
    If either the current task is already killed or PF_EXITING or a selected
    task is PF_EXITING then the oom killer is suppressed and so is the oom
    reaper.  This patch adds try_oom_reaper which checks the given task and
    queues it for the oom reaper if that is safe to be done meaning that the
    task doesn't share the mm with an alive process.
    
    This might help to release the memory pressure while the task tries to
    exit.
