mm: copy over oom_adj value at fork time
Rik van Riel [Wed, 29 Jul 2009 22:02:07 +0000 (15:02 -0700)]
Fix a post-2.6.31 regression which was introduced by
2ff05b2b4eac2e63d345fc731ea151a060247f53 ("oom: move oom_adj value from
task_struct to mm_struct").

After moving the oom_adj value from the task struct to the mm_struct, the
oom_adj value was no longer properly inherited by child processes.

Copying over the oom_adj value at fork time fixes that bug.
