[PATCH 02/11] oom: oom_kill_process() doesn't select kthread child

From: KOSAKI Motohiro
Date: Wed Jun 30 2010 - 05:28:01 EST

Now, select_bad_process() have PF_KTHREAD check, but oom_kill_process
doesn't. It mean oom_kill_process() may choose wrong task, especially,
when the child are using use_mm().
