How many tasks are in the group and what kind of memory do they use?
Is it possible that you were hit by the same issue as described in
79dfdacc memcg: make oom_lock 0 and 1 based rather than counter.

Your kernel is quite old and you should be probably asking your
distribution to help you out. There were many fixes since 2.6.32.
Are you able to reproduce the same issue with the current vanila kernel?

This looks strange because this is just an exit part which shouldn't
deadlock or anything. Is this stack stable? Have you tried to take check
it more times?
