We cannot do that unfortunatelly. This is a long term allowed threading
model and somebody might depend on it.

Removing the printk as done in this patch has hardly anything to do with
race conditions and it is not advertised to close any either. So please
stop being off topic again.

This is simply wrong. We have to care about the OOM_SCORE_ADJ_MIN
especially because it is the _admin's_ decision to hide a task from the
OOM killer.

Please stop this already. Your patch to revert the oom_score_adj
consistency is simply broken. Full stop. I have already outlined how to
do that properly. If you do care really, go and try to play with that
idea. I can be convinced there are holes in that approach and can
discuss further solutions but trying to propose a broken approach again
and again is just wasting time.
