I am lacking context here but please note that the OOM reaper patches
alone are not sufficient to make the OOM handling lockup free. There
were quite some changes in the core OOM killer handling to make this
possible. This has been work throughout the last year and it will be
really non-trivial to backport to stable trees.

So the primary question is what are you trying to achieve?
