oom, oom_reaper: do not enqueue task if it is on the oom_reaper_list head

Commit bb29902a ("oom, oom_reaper: protect oom_reaper_list using
simpler way") has simplified the check for tasks already enqueued for
the oom reaper by checking tsk->oom_reaper_list != NULL.  This check is
not sufficient because the tsk might be the head of the queue without
any other tasks queued and then we would simply lockup looping on the
same task.  Fix the condition by checking for the head as well.
