Hmm, I guess you are right. I haven't realized that pagefault_out_of_memory
can race and pick up another victim. For some reason I thought that the
page fault would break out on fatal signal pending but we don't do that (we
used to in the past). Now that I think about that more we should
probably remove out_of_memory out of pagefault_out_of_memory completely.
It is racy and it basically doesn't have any allocation context so we
might kill a task from a different domain. So can we do this instead?
There is a slight risk that somebody might have returned VM_FAULT_OOM
without doing an allocation but from my quick look nobody does that
