I believe that the motivation was to have a one line summary that is already
parsed by log consumers. And that is in __oom_kill_process one.

Also I do not think this patch improves things much for two reasons
at leasts a) it doesn't really give you the whole list of killed tasks
(this might be the whole memcg) and b) we already do have most important
information in __oom_kill_process. If something is missing there I do
not see a strong reason we cannot add it there. Like in this case.
