Gladly.
It looks like it is working (and OOMing properly).

Yes. I had not noticed that:

[ 1114.190477] oom_reaper: reaped process 1942 (leaker), now anon-rss:0kB, file-
rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
./test-script.sh: line 16: 1942 Killed ./leaker -p 10240 -c 100000

[root@localhost laleaker]# cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/leaker/memory.usage_in_bytes
3194880
[root@localhost laleaker]# cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/leaker/memory.limit_in_bytes
536870912
[root@localhost laleaker]# rm -f big-data-file.bin
[root@localhost laleaker]# cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/leaker/memory.usage_in_bytes
2838528

Thanks!
Masoud

PS: Tried hand-back-porting it to 4.19-y and it didn’t work. I think there are other patches between 4.19.0 and 5.3 that could be necessary…
