UPSTREAM mm: memcg: enable memcg OOM killer only for user faults
Johannes Weiner [Thu, 8 Aug 2013 02:56:32 +0000 (12:56 +1000)]
System calls and kernel faults (uaccess, gup) can handle an out of memory
situation gracefully and just return -ENOMEM.

Enable the memcg OOM killer only for user faults, where it's really the
only option available.
