mm, oom: get rid of signal_struct::oom_victims
After "oom: keep mm of the killed task available" we can safely detect an oom victim by checking task->signal->oom_mm so we do not need the signal_struct counter anymore so let's get rid of it. This alone wouldn't be sufficient for nommu archs because exit_oom_victim doesn't hide the process from the oom killer anymore. We can, however, mark the mm with a MMF flag in __mmput. We can reuse MMF_OOM_REAPED and rename it to a more generic MMF_OOM_SKIP.
