[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#823186: chromium: crashes on many websites

On my girlfriend's laptop, chromium 50.0.2661.94-1 was crashing on all websites that were attempted with "aw snap" and the same message:

ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(162)] Failed to adjust OOM score of renderer with pid ... : Permission denied

It's running stretch amd64, fully up to date, using intel graphics.

I was able to fix this by rebuilding chromium from source, unmodified. In case you care, I built it using pbuilder in a fresh stretch environment.
