    tools/xenstore: set oom score for xenstore daemon on Linux
    Xenstored is absolutely mandatory for a Xen host and it can't be
    restarted, so being killed by OOM-killer in case of memory shortage is
    to be avoided.
    Set /proc/$pid/oom_score_adj (if available) per default to -500 (this
    translates to 50% of dom0 memory size) in order to allow xenstored to
    use large amounts of memory without being killed.
    The percentage of dom0 memory above which the oom killer is allowed to
    kill xenstored can be set via XENSTORED_OOM_MEM_THRESHOLD in
    Make sure the pid file isn't a left-over from a previous run delete it
    before starting xenstored.
