For preserve select_bad_process() semantics. It have

        for_each_process(p) {
                if (oom_unkillable_task(p, mem, nodemask))
			continue;

                if (thread_group_empty(p) && (p->flags & PF_EXITING) && p->mm) {
                        if (p != current)
                                return ERR_PTR(-1UL);

                        chosen = p;
                        *ppoints = ULONG_MAX;
                }

	        if (oom_adj == OOM_DISABLE)
			continue;

That said, Current OOM-Killer intend to kill PF_EXITING process even if
it have OOM_DISABLE. (practically, it's not kill. it only affect to give 
allocation bonus to PF_EXITING process)

My trivial fixes series don't intend to make large semantics change.
