That will not work. ;-) As long as the console loglevel setting is
system wide, we can't allow multiple login sessions.

Per a console loglevel setting would help for several environments.
But syzbot environment cannot count on netconsole. We can't expect that
unlimited printk() will become safe.

OK. But Michal, do we have a reasonable way which can be applied now instead of
my patch or one of below patches? Just enumerating words like "hackish" or "a mess"
without YOU ACTUALLY PROPOSE PATCHES will bounce back to YOU.

"a faulty SCSI device, corrupted FS, and so and on" are reporting problems
which will complete a request. They can use (and are using) ratelimit,
aren't they?

"a memcg OOM with no eligible task" is reporting a problem which cannot
complete a request. But it can use ratelimit as well.

But we have an immediately applicable mitigation for a problem that
already OOM-killed threads are triggering "a memcg OOM with no eligible
task" using one of below patches.

Subject: [PATCH v2] mm, oom: OOM victims do not need to select next OOM victim unless __GFP_NOFAIL.

Since commit 696453e66630ad45 ("mm, oom: task_will_free_mem should skip
oom_reaped tasks") changed to select next OOM victim as soon as
MMF_OOM_SKIP is set, a memcg OOM event from a user process can generate
220+ times (12400+ lines / 730+ KB) of OOM-killer messages with
"Out of memory and no killable processes..." (i.e. no progress) due to
a race window.

This patch completely eliminates such race window by making
out_of_memory() from OOM victims no-op, for OOM victims do not
forever retry (unless __GFP_NOFAIL).

Subject: [PATCH] mm, oom: task_will_free_mem() should ignore MMF_OOM_SKIP.

Since commit 696453e66630ad45 ("mm, oom: task_will_free_mem should skip
oom_reaped tasks") changed to select next OOM victim as soon as
MMF_OOM_SKIP is set, a memcg OOM event from a user process can generate
220+ times (12400+ lines / 730+ KB) of OOM-killer messages with
"Out of memory and no killable processes..." (i.e. no progress) due to
a race window.

But since we added fatal_signal_pending() check to iterations which
can result in a behavior observed in the commit above
(e.g. commit 5abf186a30a89d5b "mm, fs: check for fatal signals in
do_generic_file_read()"), we won't observe such behavior any more.

This patch completely eliminates such race window by removing the
MMF_OOM_SKIP test from task_will_free_mem(), at the risk of falling
into infinite loop when we have to select next OOM victim due to
doing __GFP_NOFAIL allocation requests.
