Subject[PATCH] mm, oom_adj: avoid meaningless loop to find processes sharing mm
It is introduced by commit 44a70adec910 ("mm, oom_adj: make sure
processes sharing mm have same view of oom_score_adj"). Most of
user process's mm_users is bigger than 1 but only one thread group.
In this case, for_each_process loop meaninglessly try to find processes
which sharing same mm even though there is only one thread group.

My idea is that target task's nr thread is smaller than mm_users if there
are more thread groups sharing the same mm. So we can skip loop
if mm_user and nr_thread are same.

test result
while true; do count=0; time while [ $count -lt 10000 ]; do echo -1000 > /proc/1457/oom_score_adj; count=$((count+1)); done; done;
