It's not in the kernel. At the moment I'm not pushing to get
it included either since identifying the point _where_ we run
out of memory is really hard...
Once VM is rewritten a bit, I'll probably try to have the
OOM killer included into the kernel.
About VM: I've written a number of proposals for VM changes to
the linux-mm mailing list (http://mail.nl.linux.org/linux-mm/),
but seem to never get any reactions on my plans ... this means
I could start implementing stuff, but maybe I overlooked some
critical thing. ;((
