[PATCH 0/4] OOM vs PM freezer fixes

From: Michal Hocko
Date: Fri Dec 05 2014 - 11:42:00 EST

here is another take at OOM vs. PM freezer interaction fixes/cleanups.
First three patches are fixes for an unlikely cases when OOM races with
the PM freezer which should be closed completely finally. The last patch
is a simple code enhancement which is not needed strictly speaking but
it is nice to have IMO.

Both OOM killer and PM freezer are quite subtle so I hope I haven't
missing anything. Any feedback is highly appreciated. I am also
interested about feedback for the used approach. To be honest I am not
really happy about spreading TIF_MEMDIE checks into freezer (patch 1)
but I didn't find any other way for detecting OOM killed tasks.

Changes are based on top of Linus tree (3.18-rc3).

Michal Hocko (4):
OOM, PM: Do not miss OOM killed frozen tasks
OOM, PM: make OOM detection in the freezer path raceless
OOM, PM: handle pm freezer as an OOM victim correctly
OOM: thaw the OOM victim if it is frozen
