OK. Here is an updated patch. Only changelog part has changed.
I hope this will provide enough information to stable kernel maintainers.

Subject: oom, oom_reaper: do not enqueue same task twice

Arkadiusz reported that enabling memcg's group oom killing causes strange
memcg statistics where there is no task in a memcg despite the number of
tasks in that memcg is not 0. It turned out that there is a bug in
wake_oom_reaper() which allows enqueuing same task twice which makes
impossible to decrease the number of tasks in that memcg due to a refcount
leak.

This bug existed since the OOM reaper became invokable from
task_will_free_mem(current) path in out_of_memory() in Linux 4.7,

T1@P1 |T2@P1 |T3@P1 |OOM reaper

mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
mark_oom_victim(T2@P1)
wake_oom_reaper(T2@P1) # T2@P1 is enqueued.
mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
out_of_memory()
mark_oom_victim(T1@P1)
wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued again due to oom_reaper_list == T2@P1 && T1@P1->oom_reaper_list == NULL.
mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
# Completed processing an OOM victim in a different memcg domain.
spin_lock(&oom_reaper_lock)
# T1P1 is dequeued.
spin_unlock(&oom_reaper_lock)

but memcg's group oom killing made it easier to trigger this bug by
calling wake_oom_reaper() on the same task from one out_of_memory()
request.

Fix this bug using an approach used by commit 855b018325737f76 ("oom,
oom_reaper: disable oom_reaper for oom_kill_allocating_task"). As a side
effect of this patch, this patch also avoids enqueuing multiple threads
sharing memory via task_will_free_mem(current) path.
