Subject: Couple of kernel issues

1) oom: fix the unsafe usage of badness() in proc_oom_score()
upstream commit 28b83c51 (v2.6.32-rc1) introduced the problem.

2) tty: release_one_tty() forgets to put pids
Not sure this issue can be triggered by a non-privileged user.

Not requesting CVE names for these as these did not affect our supported 
kernels. Just FYI.

Thanks, Eugene
