Sysctl oom_kill_allocating_task enables or disables killing the OOM-triggering
task in out-of-memory situations, but it only works on overall system-wide oom.
But it's also a useful indication in memcg so we take it into consideration
while oom happening in memcg. Other sysctl such as panic_on_oom has already
been memcg-ware.

You're working on an old kernel, mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() has moved to
mm/memcontrol.c. Please rebase on 3.7-rc1 and send an updated patch,
which otherwise looks good.

Thanks for reminding! Yes, I cooked it on memcg-devel git repo but a out-of-date
since-3.2 branch... But I notice the latest branch is since-3.5(not seeing 3.6/3.7), does
it okay to working on this branch?
