32 pages per mem_cgroup_shrink_node_zone().

That said, the algorithm is here.

1. call mem_cgroup_largest_soft_limit_node()
calculate largest cgroup
2. call mem_cgroup_shrink_node_zone() and shrink 32 pages
3. goto 1 if limit is still exceed.

If it's not your intention, can you please your intended algorithm?

I've found this by review. and my patch works fine on my test environment.
Of cource, if you do _not_ run the code on heavy pressure, your original code
works too.
