Here is my version.

Subject: [PATCH] mm: memcontrol: Don't flood OOM messages with no eligible task.

syzbot is hitting RCU stall at shmem_fault() [1].
This is because memcg-OOM events with no eligible task (current thread
is marked as OOM-unkillable) continued calling dump_header() from
out_of_memory() enabled by commit 3100dab2aa09dc6e ("mm: memcontrol:
print proper OOM header when no eligible victim left.").

Let's make sure that next dump_header() waits for at least 60 seconds from
previous "Out of memory and no killable processes..." message, if current
thread already reported it. This change allows current thread to complete
memory allocation requests for doing recovery operation, and also allows
us to know whether the current thread is doing recovery operation.
