    x86_64: During VM oom condition, kill all threads in process group
    During a VM oom condition, kill all threads in the process group.
    We have had complaints where a threaded application is left in a bad state
    after one of it's threads is killed when we hit a VM: out_of_memory 
    Killing just one of the process threads can leave the application in a bad
    state, whereas killing the entire process group would allow for the
    application to restart, or otherwise handled, and makes it very obvious that
    something has gone wrong.
    This change allows the entire process group to be taken down, rather than 
    the one thread.
