oom, oom_reaper: do not enqueue same task twice
commit 9bcdeb51bd7d2ae9fe65ea4d60643d2aeef5bfe3 upstream. 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 ----------+----------+----------+------------ # Processing an OOM victim in a different memcg domain. try_charge() mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() mutex_lock(&oom_lock) try_charge() mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() mutex_lock(&oom_lock) try_charge() mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() mutex_lock(&oom_lock) out_of_memory() oom_kill_process(P1) do_send_sig_info(SIGKILL, @P1) mark_oom_victim(T1@P1) wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued. 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.
