Subject: [RFC][PATCH] memcg: page fault oom improvement
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 23rd February 2010 03:03:15 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Nishimura-san, could you review and test your extreme test case with this ?

==
From: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki 

Now, because of page_fault_oom_kill, returning VM_FAULT_OOM means
random oom-killer should be called. Considering memcg, it handles
OOM-kill in its own logic, there was a problem as "oom-killer called
twice" problem.

By commit a636b327f731143ccc544b966cfd8de6cb6d72c6, I added a check
in pagefault_oom_killer shouldn't kill some (random) task if
memcg's oom-killer already killed anyone.
That was done by comapring current jiffies and last oom jiffies of memcg.

I thought that easy fix was enough, but Nishimura could write a test case
where checking jiffies is not enough. So, my fix was not enough.
This is a fix of above commit.

This new one does this.
 * memcg's try_charge() never returns -ENOMEM if oom-killer is allowed.
 * If someone is calling oom-killer, wait for it in try_charge().
 * If TIF_MEMDIE is set as a result of try_charge(), return 0 and
   allow process to make progress (and die.) 
 * removed hook in pagefault_out_of_memory.

By this, pagefult_out_of_memory will be never called if memcg's oom-killer
is called and scattered codes are now in memcg's charge logic again.

TODO:
 If __GFP_WAIT is not specified in gfp_mask flag, VM_FAULT_OOM will return
 anyway. We need to investigate it whether there is a case.
