[-mm PATCH 7/9] Memory controller OOM handling (v4)

From: Pavel Emelianov <xemul at openvz.org>

Out of memory handling for containers over their limit. A task from the
container over limit is chosen using the existing OOM logic and killed.

TODO:
1. As discussed in the OLS BOF session, consider implementing a user
space policy for OOM handling.
