... by "OOM people" I meant "MM people".
"MM people" is a subset of "OOM people".

OK, so I didn't notice the "static" part of the `oom_print_buf'.
I need some rest, I guess.

The "SMP-safe" comment becomes a bit tricky when pr_line is used with a
static buffer. Either we need to require synchronization - umm... and
document it - or to provide some means of synchronization in pr_line().
Let's think what pr_line API should do about it.

Any thoughts?
