[PATCH] out of memory notifier



Add a notifer chain to the out of memory killer.  If one of the registered
callbacks could release some memory, do not kill the process but return and
retry the allocation that forced the oom killer to run.

The purpose of the notifier is to add a safety net in the presence of
memory ballooners.  If the resource manager inflated the balloon to a size
where memory allocations can not be satisfied anymore, it is better to
deflate the balloon a bit instead of killing processes.

The implementation for the s390 ballooner is included.
