Why is it needed?

I _REALLY_ don't want to add any exports to any part of the kernel for
the android low memory stuff.  That is because it is not something that
should be touching anything else, especially as numerous people disagree
with what it does and how it does it.

Instead, you should be spending the time and effort to properly
implement this, as has been discussed numerous times, the last one a
mere few weeks ago when someone tried adding the nokia-specific low
memory killer/notifier code.

So no, sorry, I will not take these patches, unless you come up with
some very good justifications why.
