I did, but my vm knolege is rather limited.
I don't really know really know _where_ to place
out_of_memory() in the new try_to_free_pages_zone()...
and what other changes would be necessary in vmscan.c.

My try & error approach did not succeed.

I would be really glad if someone (aa may be :) could
provide the information where/how to place the call for a custom
(or the old) oom killer - if it's really that simple ...
