You're not a maintainer, as I obviously have to point out to you often
enough. I've repeatedly asked you to work with me in reviewing my oom
killer rewrite on linux-mm, yet you seldom offer any valuable feedback
other than a simple "nack". I don't consider any of your patchset here to
be more applicable than my patchset, which has been developed over the
course of several months, and your lack of participation in the process is
really quite shocking to me.

In case nobody has told you before: Andrew maintains this code and these
patches will be going through the -mm tree. You are not a maintainer of
it (or any other kernel code), so please act within your role of kernel
hacker and review patches as people propose them by offering your
constructive feedback.
