Subject[PATCH 4.9 134/137] oom, oom_reaper: do not enqueue same task twice
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>

commit 9bcdeb51bd7d2ae9fe65ea4d60643d2aeef5bfe3 upstream.

Arkadiusz reported that enabling memcg's group oom killing causes
strange memcg statistics where there is no task in a memcg despite the
number of tasks in that memcg is not 0. It turned out that there is a
bug in wake_oom_reaper() which allows enqueuing same task twice which
makes impossible to decrease the number of tasks in that memcg due to a
refcount leak.

This bug existed since the OOM reaper became invokable from
task_will_free_mem(current) path in out_of_memory() in Linux 4.7,

T1@P1 |T2@P1 |T3@P1 |OOM reaper

do_send_sig_info(SIGKILL, @P1)
mark_oom_victim(T1@P1)
wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued.
mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
mark_oom_victim(T2@P1)
wake_oom_reaper(T2@P1) # T2@P1 is enqueued.
mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
mark_oom_victim(T1@P1)
wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued again due to oom_reaper_list == T2@P1 && T1@P1->oom_reaper_list == NULL.
mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
# Completed processing an OOM victim in a different memcg domain.
spin_lock(&oom_reaper_lock)
# T1P1 is dequeued.
spin_unlock(&oom_reaper_lock)

but memcg's group oom killing made it easier to trigger this bug by
calling wake_oom_reaper() on the same task from one out_of_memory()
request.

Fix this bug using an approach used by commit 855b018325737f76 ("oom,
oom_reaper: disable oom_reaper for oom_kill_allocating_task"). As a
side effect of this patch, this patch also avoids enqueuing multiple
threads sharing memory via task_will_free_mem(current) path.
