oom: add sysctl to enable task memory dump

Adds a new sysctl, 'oom_dump_tasks', that enables the kernel to produce a
dump of all system tasks (excluding kernel threads) when performing an
OOM-killing.  Information includes pid, uid, tgid, vm size, rss, cpu,
oom_adj score, and name.

This is helpful for determining why there was an OOM condition and which
rogue task caused it.

It is configurable so that large systems, such as those with several
thousand tasks, do not incur a performance penalty associated with dumping
data they may not desire.

If an OOM was triggered as a result of a memory controller, the tasklist
shall be filtered to exclude tasks that are not a member of the same
cgroup.

oom_dump_tasks
Enables a system-wide task dump (excluding kernel threads) to be
produced when the kernel performs an OOM-killing and includes such
information as pid, uid, tgid, vm size, rss, cpu, oom_adj score, and
name. This is helpful to determine why the OOM killer was invoked
and to identify the rogue task that caused it.
If this is set to zero, this information is suppressed. On very
large systems with thousands of tasks it may not be feasible to dump
the memory state information for each one. Such systems should not
be forced to incur a performance penalty in OOM conditions when the
information may not be desired.
If this is set to non-zero, this information is shown whenever the
OOM killer actually kills a memory-hogging task.
The default value is 0.
