Difficult to say as I can't reproduce them.
I've looked at the logs I have and there are no OOM kills, only some
kvm-related messages:

Logs capture ~3-4 seconds before the crash.
However, syzkaller test processes tend to consume lots of memory from
time to time and cause low memory conditions.

Kills are usually caused by my test driver that kills test processes
after short time.

However, I do see other assorted bugs caused by kvm that are induced
by OOM kills:
