Burt Holzman has noticed that memcg v1 doesn't notify about OOM events
via eventfd anymore. The reason is that 29ef680ae7c2 ("memcg, oom: move
out_of_memory back to the charge path") has moved the oom handling back
to the charge path. While doing so the notification was left behind in
mem_cgroup_oom_synchronize.

Fix the issue by replicating the oom hierarchy locking and the
notification.

Hi Andrew,
I forgot to CC you on the patch sent as a reply to the original bug
report [1] so I am reposting with Ack from Johannes. Burt has confirmed
this is resolving the regression for him [2]. 4.20 is out but I have
marked the patch for stable so it should hit both 4.19 and 4.20.
