Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm, oom: make sure that the oom victim uses memory reserves
Date
From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Roman Gushchin has noticed that we kill two tasks when the memory hog
killed from page fault path:
[ 25.721494] allocate invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x14280ca(GFP_HIGHUSER_MOVABLE|__GFP_ZERO), nodemask=(null), order=0, oom_score_adj=0
[ 25.725658] allocate cpuset=/ mems_allowed=0

[ 25.729598] Call Trace:

which leads to VM_FAULT_OOM and so to another out_of_memory when bailing
out from the #PF

We wouldn't choose another task normally because oom_evaluate_task will
skip selecting another task while there is an existing oom victim but we
can race with the oom_reaper which can set MMF_OOM_SKIP and so select
another task. Tetsuo Handa has pointed out that 9a67f6488eca926f ("mm:
consolidate GFP_NOFAIL checks in the allocator slowpath") made this more
probable because prior to this patch we have retried the allocation with
access to memory reserves which is likely to succeed.

Make sure we at least attempted to allocate with no watermarks before
bailing out and failing the allocation.
