Subject: [BUG][PATCH] fix oom killer kills current every time if there is

constrained_alloc(), which is called to detect where oom is from,
checks passed zone_list().
If zone_list includes all nodes, it thinks oom is from mempolicy.

But there is memory-less-node. contstrained_alloc() should get
memory_less_node into count. Otherwise, current process will die
at any time. This patch fix it.
