[PATCH] add OOM debug
Janet Morgan [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:14:56 +0000 (17:14 -0700)]
This patch provides more debug info when the system is OOM.  It displays
memory stats (basically sysrq-m info) from __alloc_pages() when page
allocation fails and during OOM kill.

Thanks to Dave Jones for coming up with the idea.
