The OOM killer invoked by [ T9694] called printk() but didn't kill anything.
Instead, SIGINT from Ctrl-C killed all thread groups sharing current->mm.

The OOM killer invoked by [ T9750] did not call printk() but hit
task_will_free_mem(current) in out_of_memory() and invoked the OOM reaper,
without calling mark_oom_victim() on all thread groups sharing current->mm.
Did you notice that I wrote that

Since mm-oom-marks-all-killed-tasks-as-oom-victims.patch does not call mark_oom_victim()
when task_will_free_mem() == true,

? :-(
