I'm indifferent to the memcg evaluation criteria used to determine which
memcg should be selected over others with the same priority, others may
feel differently.

I'm curious about the decision made in this conditional and how
oom_kill_memcg_member() ignores task->signal->oom_score_adj. It means
that memory.oom_kill_all_tasks overrides /proc/pid/oom_score_adj if it
should otherwise be disabled.

It's undocumented in the changelog, but I'm questioning whether it's the
right decision. Doesn't it make sense to kill all tasks that are not oom
disabled, and allow the user to still protect certain processes by their
/proc/pid/oom_score_adj setting? Otherwise, there's no way to do that
protection without a sibling memcg and its own reservation of memory. I'm
thinking about a process that governs jobs inside the memcg and if there
is an oom kill, it wants to do logging and any cleanup necessary before
exiting itself. It seems like a powerful combination if coupled with oom
notification.

Also, s/elegible/eligible/

Otherwise, looks good!
