Subject[PATCH v2] mm, oom: Tolerate processes sharing mm with different view of oom_score_adj.
From
Date
This patch reverts both commit 44a70adec910d692 ("mm, oom_adj: make sure
processes sharing mm have same view of oom_score_adj") and commit
97fd49c2355ffded ("mm, oom: kill all tasks sharing the mm") in order to
close a race and reduce the latency at __set_oom_adj(), and reduces the
warning at __oom_kill_process() in order to minimize the latency.

Commit 36324a990cf578b5 ("oom: clear TIF_MEMDIE after oom_reaper managed
to unmap the address space") introduced the worst case mentioned in
44a70adec910d692. But since the OOM killer skips mm with MMF_OOM_SKIP set,
only administrators can trigger the worst case.

Since 44a70adec910d692 did not take latency into account, we can "hold RCU
for minutes and trigger RCU stall warnings" by calling printk() on many
thousands of thread groups. Also, current code becomes a DoS attack vector
which will allow "stalling for more than one month in unkillable state"
simply printk()ing same messages when many thousands of thread groups
tried to iterate __set_oom_adj() on each other.

I also noticed that 44a70adec910d692 is racy [1], and trying to fix the
race will require a global lock which is too costly for rare events. And
Michal Hocko is thinking to change the oom_score_adj implementation to per
mm_struct (with shadowed score stored in per task_struct in order to
support vfork() => __set_oom_adj() => execve() sequence) so that we don't
need the global lock.

If the worst case in 44a70adec910d692 happened, it is an administrator's
request. Therefore, before changing the oom_score_adj implementation,
let's eliminate the DoS attack vector first.
