> Subject: oom: introduce find_lock_task_mm to fix mm false positives fix
> From: David Rientjes <rientjes(a)>
> find_lock_task_mm() should be documented so that we clearly understand
> what it does and why we need it.
> At the same time, remove a stale coment about dereferencing of a local
> variable "mm" in badness() which no longer exists and was removed when
> find_lock_task_mm() was added.
