Seems like you've got little or no anon pages left, so 1GB free swap
is no problem (nothing left to page out).

I would hope it is not a memory leak (which might point to lockless
pagecache). It doesn't look like it because there is still lots of
inactive file pages, so that points to the page reclaim changes
(which is not to say page reclaim changes couldn't cause a memory
leak themselves).

Curious: if you kill off all the LTP tests after the OOM condition,
what does your /proc/meminfo look like before and after running
sync ; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
