I think that it is dump_header() which currently spends much time (due to
synchronous printing) enough to make "the second memcg oom kill shows usage
is >40MB below its limit of 100MB" happen. Shouldn't we call dump_header()
and then do the last check and end with "but did not kill anybody" message?
