Hmm, per mem_cgroup flag would be better than per task_struct flag.

Subject: [PATCH v2] 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 requested
memcg already reported it. This change allows threads in requested memcg to
complete memory allocation requests for doing recovery operation, and also
allows us to know whether threads in requested memcg is doing recovery
operation.
