I am not losing "at the OOM event state". Please find "struct oom_task_info"
(for now) embedded into "struct task_struct" which holds "at the OOM event state".

And my patch moves "printk() from dump_tasks()" from OOM context to WQ context.
Thus, I do remove stalling by defer printing of "struct oom_task_info" until
the OOM killer sends SIGKILL and the OOM reaper starts reclaiming memory.
