Disable the oom killer for a container's memory cgroup when the memory
limit is set. If oom occurs later, the problem task (that is, the one
which triggered oom) will be suspended () and the oom notifier will
be driven. This gives us the opportunity to gather diagnostics showing
details of the out of memory condition.
In the oom notifier, log memory usage, memory limit, swap + memory
usage, swap + memory limit and statistics and re- enable the oom
Re-enabling the oom killer is necessary in spite of the fact that the
oom notifier proceeds to terminate the container. This is because the
current method of terminating the container can, at least in theory,
deadlock when the container is out of memory (wshd can require more
memory, e.g. for a stack frame, and be suspended due to lack of
Once re-enabled, the oom killer will kill a task (usually the
application) in the container () and this will enable container
termination to successfully kill the remaining tasks via wshd. If wshd
hits the container's memory limit with the oom killer enabled, the oom
killer will kill it and this will kill all the other processes in the
container (since wshd is the PID namespace parent).

 Linux kernel's ./Documentation/cgroups/memory.txt states:
"If OOM-killer is disabled, tasks under cgroup will hang/sleep in
memory cgroup's OOM-waitqueue when they request accountable
 Although memory.txt does not specify that re-enabling the oom
killer in the oom notifier will cause it to kill a task, this
seems like the only reasonable behaviour and it seems to work
that way in practice.
