I can see how the origin memcg might be useful, but ...

this is not 5 lines at all. We dump memcg stats for the whole oom memcg
subtree. For your patch it would be the whole subtree of the memcg of
the oom victim. With cgroup v1 this can be quite deep as tasks can
belong to inter-nodes as well. Would be

pr_info("Task in ");
pr_cont_cgroup_path(task_cgroup(p, memory_cgrp_id));
pr_cont(" killed as a result of limit of ");

part of that output sufficient for your usecase? You will not get memory
consumption of the group but is that really so relevant when we are
killing individual tasks? Please note that there are proposals to make
the global oom killer memcg aware and select by the memcg size rather
than pick on random tasks
( Maybe that
will be more interesting for your container usecase.
