Hi,
these three patches tried to address a simple OOM victim runaways when
the oom victim can deplete the memory reserve completely. Tetsuo was able
to trigger the depletion in the write(2) path and I believe the similar
is possible for the read part. Vmalloc would be a bit harder but still
not impossible.

Unfortunately I do not see a better way around this issue as long as we
give OOM victims access to memory reserves without any limits. I have
tried to limit this access [1] which would help at least to keep some
memory for emergency actions. Anyway, even if we limit the amount of
reserves the OOM victim can consume it is still preferable to back off
before accessible reserves are depleted.

Tetsuo was suggesting introducing __GFP_KILLABLE which would fail the
allocation rather than consuming the reserves. I see two problems with
this approach.
        1) in order this flags work as expected all the blocking
        operations in the allocator call chain (including the direct
        reclaim) would have to be killable and this is really non
        trivial to achieve. Especially when we do not have any control
        over shrinkers.
        2) even if the above could be dealt with we would still have to
        find all the places which do allocation in the loop based on
        the user request. So it wouldn't be simpler than an explicit
        fatal_signal_pending check.

Thoughts?

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

Tetsuo has noticed that an OOM stress test which performs large write
requests can cause the full memory reserves depletion. He has tracked
this down to the following path
	__alloc_pages_nodemask+0x436/0x4d0
	alloc_pages_current+0x97/0x1b0
	__page_cache_alloc+0x15d/0x1a0          mm/filemap.c:728
	pagecache_get_page+0x5a/0x2b0           mm/filemap.c:1331
	grab_cache_page_write_begin+0x23/0x40   mm/filemap.c:2773
	iomap_write_begin+0x50/0xd0             fs/iomap.c:118
	iomap_write_actor+0xb5/0x1a0            fs/iomap.c:190
	? iomap_write_end+0x80/0x80             fs/iomap.c:150
	iomap_apply+0xb3/0x130                  fs/iomap.c:79
	iomap_file_buffered_write+0x68/0xa0     fs/iomap.c:243

	xfs_file_buffered_aio_write+0x132/0x390 [xfs]

	SyS_write+0x58/0xc0
	do_syscall_64+0x6c/0x200
	entry_SYSCALL64_slow_path+0x25/0x25

the oom victim has access to all memory reserves to make a forward
progress to exit easier. But iomap_file_buffered_write and other callers
of iomap_apply loop to complete the full request. We need to check for
fatal signals and back off with a short write instead. As the
iomap_apply delegates all the work down to the actor we have to hook
into those. All callers that work with the page cache are calling
iomap_write_begin so we will check for signals there. dax_iomap_actor
has to handle the situation explicitly because it copies data to the
userspace directly. Other callers like iomap_page_mkwrite work on a
single page or iomap_fiemap_actor do not allocate memory based on the
given len.

do_generic_file_read can be told to perform a large request from
userspace. If the system is under OOM and the reading task is the OOM
victim then it has an access to memory reserves and finishing the full
request can lead to the full memory depletion which is dangerous. Make
sure we rather go with a short read and allow the killed task to
terminate.

* [PATCH 2/3] mm, fs: check for fatal signals in do_generic_file_read

do_generic_file_read can be told to perform a large request from
userspace. If the system is under OOM and the reading task is the OOM
victim then it has an access to memory reserves and finishing the full
request can lead to the full memory depletion which is dangerous. Make
sure we rather go with a short read and allow the killed task to
terminate.

__vmalloc_area_node allocates pages to cover the requested vmalloc size.
This can be a lot of memory. If the current task is killed by the OOM
killer, and thus has an unlimited access to memory reserves, it can
consume all the memory theoretically. Fix this by checking for
fatal_signal_pending and back off early.

I don't think they are problems.
I think it is OK to start __GFP_KILLABLE with best-effort implementation.

(1) is a sign of "direct reclaim considered harmful". Like I demonstrated
in "mm/page_alloc: Wait for oom_lock before retrying." thread, it is trivial
to consume all CPU times by letting far many threads (than available CPUs)
perform direct reclaim. It can cause more IPIs in drain_all_pages() than
needed (which we are considering workqueue in "mm, page_alloc: drain per-cpu
pages from workqueue context" thread). There is no need to let all allocating
threads do direct reclaim. By offloading direct reclaim to dedicated kernel
threads (we are talking about slowpath where allocating threads need to wait
for reclaim operation, so overhead of context switching should be acceptable),
we will be able to manage dependency better within reclaim operation (e.g.
propagate allowable level of memory reserves to use) compared to current
situation (e.g. let wb_workfn being blocked for more than a minute due to
doing direct reclaim observed in "Bug 192981 - page allocation stalls" thread).

And why do you want to limit __GFP_KILLABLE to "do allocation in the loop" in (2) ?
Any single allocation can use __GFP_KILLABLE. Not allocating from memory reserves
(even it is a single page) will reduce the possibility of falling into OOM livelock on
CONFIG_MMU=n kernels, reduce the possibility of unwanted allocation stalls/failures,
for it will help preserving memory reserves for allocation requests which are really
important.

I don't think they are problems.
I think it is OK to start __GFP_KILLABLE with best-effort implementation.

(1) is a sign of "direct reclaim considered harmful". Like I demonstrated
in "mm/page_alloc: Wait for oom_lock before retrying." thread, it is trivial
to consume all CPU times by letting far many threads (than available CPUs)
perform direct reclaim. It can cause more IPIs in drain_all_pages() than
needed (which we are considering workqueue in "mm, page_alloc: drain per-cpu
pages from workqueue context" thread). There is no need to let all allocating
threads do direct reclaim. By offloading direct reclaim to dedicated kernel
threads (we are talking about slowpath where allocating threads need to wait
for reclaim operation, so overhead of context switching should be acceptable),
we will be able to manage dependency better within reclaim operation (e.g.
propagate allowable level of memory reserves to use) compared to current
situation (e.g. let wb_workfn being blocked for more than a minute due to
doing direct reclaim observed in "Bug 192981 - page allocation stalls" thread).

And why do you want to limit __GFP_KILLABLE to "do allocation in the loop" in (2) ?
Any single allocation can use __GFP_KILLABLE. Not allocating from memory reserves
(even it is a single page) will reduce the possibility of falling into OOM livelock on
CONFIG_MMU=n kernels, reduce the possibility of unwanted allocation stalls/failures,
for it will help preserving memory reserves for allocation requests which are really
important.
