Nothing interesting. This is NOT a race between clone() and the OOM killer. :-(
By the moment the OOM killer is invoked, all clone() requests are already completed.

Did you notice that there is no

"Killed process %d (%s) total-vm:%lukB, anon-rss:%lukB, file-rss:%lukB, shmem-rss:%lukB\n"

line between

[ 71.304703][ T9694] Memory cgroup out of memory: Kill process 9692 (a.out) score 904 or sacrifice child

and

[ 71.309149][ T54] oom_reaper: reaped process 9750 (a.out), now anon-rss:0kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:185532kB

? Then, you will find that [ T9694] failed to reach for_each_process(p) loop inside
__oom_kill_process() in the first round of out_of_memory() call because
find_lock_task_mm() == NULL at __oom_kill_process() because Ctrl-C made that victim
complete exit_mm() before find_lock_task_mm() is called. Then, in the second round
of out_of_memory() call, [ T9750] (which is fatal_signal_pending() == T &&
tsk_is_oom_victim() == F) hit task_will_free_mem(current) path and called
mark_oom_victim() and woke up the OOM reaper. Then, before the third round of
out_of_memory() call starts, the OOM reaper set MMF_OOM_SKIP. When the third round
of out_of_memory() call started, [ T9748] could not hit task_will_free_mem(current)
path because MMF_OOM_SKIP was already set, and oom_badness() ignored any mm which
already has MMF_OOM_SKIP. As a result, [ T9748] failed to find a candidate. And this
step repeats for up to number of threads (213 times for this run).

Of course. My patch handles it perfectly. Even if we raced with clone() requests,
why do we need to care about threads doing clone() requests? Such threads are not
inside try_charge(), and therefore such threads can't contribute to this issue
by calling out_of_memory() from try_charge().
