More interesting stuff is higher in the kernel log

Are you sure you want to have hard limit set to 0?

There are only 3 pages charged to this memcg!

The oom reaper cannot reclaim file backed memory from a large part. I
assume this is are shared mappings which are living outside of memcg
because of the counter.

This is unexpected though. We have killed a task (23767) which is trying
to charge the memory which means it should
trigger the charge retry and that one should force the charge

/*
* Unlike in global OOM situations, memcg is not in a physical
* memory shortage. Allow dying and OOM-killed tasks to
* bypass the last charges so that they can exit quickly and
* free their memory.
*/
if (unlikely(tsk_is_oom_victim(current) ||
fatal_signal_pending(current) ||
current->flags & PF_EXITING))
goto force;

There doesn't seem to be any other sign of OOM killer invocation which
could then indeed lead to the warning as there is no other task to kill
(both syz-executor[23] have been killed and oom_reaped already). So I
would be curious what happened between 367.180119 which was the last
successful oom invocation and 367.207845. An additional printk in
mem_cgroup_out_of_memory might tell us more.

Anyway your memcg setup is indeed misconfigured. Memcg with 0 hard limit
and basically no memory charged by existing tasks is not going to fly
and the warning is exactly to call that out.

If this is some sort of race and we warn too eagerly is still to be
checked and potentially fixed of course.
