Subject: [PATCH v2] memcg: killed threads should not invoke memcg OOM killer

If $N > $M, a single process with $N threads in a memcg group can easily
kill all $M processes in that memcg group, for mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
does not check if current thread needs to invoke the memcg OOM killer.

T1@P1 |T2...$N@P1|P2...$M |OOM reaper
----------+----------+----------+----------
# all sleeping
try_charge()
mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
mutex_lock(oom_lock)
try_charge()
mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
mutex_lock(oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
select_bad_process()
oom_kill_process(P1)
wake_oom_reaper()
oom_reap_task() # ignores P1
mutex_unlock(oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
select_bad_process(P2...$M)
# all killed by T2...$N@P1
wake_oom_reaper()
oom_reap_task() # ignores P2...$M
mutex_unlock(oom_lock)

We don't need to invoke the memcg OOM killer if current thread was killed
when waiting for oom_lock, for mem_cgroup_oom_synchronize(true) can count
on try_charge() when mem_cgroup_oom_synchronize(true) can not make forward
progress because try_charge() allows already killed/exiting threads to
make forward progress, and memory_max_write() can bail out upon signals.

At first Michal thought that fatal signal check is racy compared to
tsk_is_oom_victim() check. But an experiment showed that trying to call
mark_oom_victim() on all killed thread groups is more racy than fatal
signal check due to task_will_free_mem(current) path in out_of_memory().

Therefore, this patch changes mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() to bail out upon
should_force_charge() == T rather than upon fatal_signal_pending() == T,
for should_force_charge() == T && signal_pending(current) == F at
memory_max_write() can't happen because current thread won't call
memory_max_write() after getting PF_EXITING.
