Subject[v7 5/5] mm, oom: cgroup v2 mount option to disable cgroup-aware OOM killer
Date
Introducing of cgroup-aware OOM killer changes the victim selection
algorithm used by default: instead of picking the largest process,
it will pick the largest memcg and then the largest process inside.

This affects only cgroup v2 users.

To provide a way to use cgroups v2 if the old OOM victim selection
algorithm is preferred for some reason, the nogroupoom mount option
is added.

If set, the OOM selection is performed in a "traditional" per-process
way. Both oom_priority and oom_group memcg knobs are ignored.
