Here is the patch. I've found two bugs when the TIF_MEMDIE was checked
on current rather than the given task. I will separate them into their
own patches (was just too lazy for it now). If the approach looks
reasonable then I will repost next week.

Subject: [PATCH] mm, oom: move TIF_MEMDIE to the task_struct

There is an interest to drop thread_info->flags usage for further clean
ups. TIF_MEMDIE stands in the way so let's move it out of the
thread_info into the task_struct. We cannot use flags because the oom
killer will set it for !current task without any locking so let's add
task_struct::memdie. It has to be atomic because we need it to be
updated atomically.

Well, I actually meant that to me its usage doesn't look really
right and we need to change this logic. But this is off-topic.

Can't comment, but note that it was decided to move ti->flags into
task_struct, so the patch is "off-topic" too ;)

Yet another oom member. And these atomic_add_unless's look a bit
strange, it seems that you could add "bool memdie" and use xchg()
with the same effect?

OK, my original understanding was that we want to get rid of all the
current thread flags.

That would work as well of course.

Thanks!
