Yes, current design is not the best thing, my bad.
(I had to band-aid against unexpected panic in pagefault_out_of_memory.)

But tweaking that vaule seems not promissing.

Essential fix is better. The best fix is don't call oom-killer in
pagefault_out_of_memory. So, returning other than VM_FAULT_OOM is
the best, I think. But hmm...we don't have VM_FAULT_AGAIN etc..
So, please avoid quick fix.

One thing I can think of is sleep-and-retry in try_charge() if PF_MEMDIE
is not set. (But..By this, memcg will never return faiulre in page fault.
but it may sound reasonable.)


Thanks,
