Subject[PATCH] oom: improve oom disable handling
Date
From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Tetsuo has reported that sysrq triggered OOM killer will print a
misleading information when no tasks are selected:

[ 713.805315] sysrq: SysRq : Manual OOM execution
[ 713.808920] Out of memory: Kill process 4468 ((agetty)) score 0 or sacrifice child
[ 713.814913] Killed process 4468 ((agetty)) total-vm:43704kB, anon-rss:1760kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
[ 714.004805] sysrq: SysRq : Manual OOM execution
[ 714.005936] Out of memory: Kill process 4469 (systemd-cgroups) score 0 or sacrifice child
[ 714.008117] Killed process 4469 (systemd-cgroups) total-vm:10704kB, anon-rss:120kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
[ 714.189310] sysrq: SysRq : Manual OOM execution
[ 714.193425] sysrq: OOM request ignored because killer is disabled
[ 714.381313] sysrq: SysRq : Manual OOM execution
[ 714.385158] sysrq: OOM request ignored because killer is disabled
[ 714.573320] sysrq: SysRq : Manual OOM execution
[ 714.576988] sysrq: OOM request ignored because killer is disabled

The real reason is that there are no eligible tasks for the OOM killer
to select but since 7c5f64f84483bd13 ("mm: oom: deduplicate victim
selection code for memcg and global oom") the semantic of out_of_memory
has changed without updating moom_callback.

This patch updates moom_callback to tell that no task was eligible
which is the case for both oom killer disabled and no eligible tasks.
In order to help distinguish first case from the second add printk to
both oom_killer_{enable,disable}. This information is useful on its own
because it might help debugging potential memory allocation failures.

Fixes: 7c5f64f84483bd13 ("mm: oom: deduplicate victim selection code for memcg and global oom")
