Sorry for the delay. I have been trying to collect more data in one shot.

This is a a typical round of the loop after enabling all vmscan tracepoints:

The whole trace output is huge (33M), I can provide it on request.

I suspect the process gets stuck in the retry loop in try_charge(), as
the _shortest_ stacktrace of the perf samples indicated:

cycles:ppp:
ffffffffa72963db mem_cgroup_iter
ffffffffa72980ca mem_cgroup_oom_unlock
ffffffffa7298c15 try_charge
ffffffffa729a886 mem_cgroup_try_charge
ffffffffa720ec03 __add_to_page_cache_locked
ffffffffa720ee3a add_to_page_cache_lru
ffffffffa7312ddb iomap_readpages_actor
ffffffffa73133f7 iomap_apply
ffffffffa73135da iomap_readpages
ffffffffa722062e read_pages
ffffffffa7220b3f __do_page_cache_readahead
ffffffffa7210554 filemap_fault
ffffffffc039e41f __xfs_filemap_fault
ffffffffa724f5e7 __do_fault
ffffffffa724c5f2 __handle_mm_fault
ffffffffa724cbc6 handle_mm_fault
ffffffffa70a313e __do_page_fault
ffffffffa7a00dfe page_fault

But I don't see how it could be, the only possible case is when
mem_cgroup_oom() returns OOM_SUCCESS. However I can't
find any clue in dmesg pointing to OOM. These processes in the
same memcg are either running or sleeping (that is not exiting or
coredump'ing), I don't see how and why they could be selected as
a victim of OOM killer. I don't see any signal pending either from
their /proc/X/status.

Here is the status of the whole memcg:

$ sudo cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/system.slice/osqueryd.service/memory.oom_control
oom_kill_disable 0
under_oom 0
oom_kill 0

Please let me know if I can provide anything else.
