[hackers] [slock] [PATCH] Slightly safer OOM killer disablement

The old behaviour of slock was to write the hardcoded string "-1000\n"
to `/proc/self/oom_score_adj`. My patch, while a bit less tidy, errs
on the side of caution by deriving this string from OOM_SCORE_ADJ_MIN,
which is defined in `linux/oom.h` as being the score to use to disable
the OOM killer.

I'd be interested in any feedback on this patch, as I feel bad for
submitting a patch which makes code less tidy :-P

Four word witty remark
