Masoud Sharbiani noticed that commit 29ef680ae7c21110 ("memcg, oom: move
out_of_memory back to the charge path") broke memcg OOM called from
__xfs_filemap_fault() path. It turned out that try_charge() is retrying
forever without making forward progress because mem_cgroup_oom(GFP_NOFS)
cannot invoke the OOM killer due to commit 3da88fb3bacfaa33 ("mm, oom:
move GFP_NOFS check to out_of_memory").

Allowing forced charge due to being unable to invoke memcg OOM killer
will lead to global OOM situation. Also, just returning -ENOMEM will be
risky because OOM path is lost and some paths (e.g. get_user_pages())
will leak -ENOMEM. Therefore, invoking memcg OOM killer (despite GFP_NOFS)
will be the only choice we can choose for now.

Until 29ef680ae7c21110~1, we were able to invoke memcg OOM killer when
GFP_KERNEL reclaim failed [1]. But since 29ef680ae7c21110, we need to
invoke memcg OOM killer when GFP_NOFS reclaim failed [2]. Although in
the past we did invoke memcg OOM killer for GFP_NOFS [3], we might get
pre-mature memcg OOM reports due to this patch.
