I expect:

When SysRq-f did not find killable processes, it does not emit
message other than "OOM request ignored. No task eligible".

There is no point with emitting memory information etc.

How emitting memory information etc. helps you understand why it failed?
"No task eligible" is sufficient for you to understand why, isn't it?
