Interesting. It looks at some point I had some cpu and cpuacct
hierarchies that never really unmounted.

#subsys_name hierarchy num_cgroups enabled
cpuset 0 1 1
cpu 89 1 1
cpuacct 89 1 1
memory 0 1 1
devices 0 1 1
freezer 0 1 1
net_cls 0 1 1
blkio 0 1 1
perf_event 0 1 1
hugetlb 0 1 1

And playing a little more I get the leak scenario.

#subsys_name hierarchy num_cgroups enabled
cpuset 0 1 1
cpu 90 3 1
cpuacct 90 3 1
memory 90 3 1
devices 0 1 1
freezer 90 3 1
net_cls 0 1 1
blkio 0 1 1
perf_event 0 1 1
hugetlb 0 1 1

So it definitely did not unmount.

After echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

#subsys_name hierarchy num_cgroups enabled
cpuset 0 1 1
cpu 90 1 1
cpuacct 90 1 1
memory 90 1 1
devices 0 1 1
freezer 90 1 1
net_cls 0 1 1
blkio 0 1 1
perf_event 0 1 1
hugetlb 0 1 1

Hmm. But after some time passes I have

#subsys_name hierarchy num_cgroups enabled
cpuset 0 1 1
cpu 0 1 1
cpuacct 0 1 1
memory 0 1 1
devices 0 1 1
freezer 0 1 1
net_cls 0 1 1
blkio 0 1 1
perf_event 0 1 1
hugetlb 0 1 1

Hmm. Looking farther I see what is going on. And it has nothing to do
with the freezer. (I have commented out that code and reproduced it
without the freezer to be doubly certain).


On the exit path exit_robust_list is triggering a page fault to fault a
page back in. Which since we have no memory causes the exit path
to get stuck in mem_cgroup_handle_oom.

Which means the following change should fix the hang. I will test it in just
a second.

The problem is that we only handled pending fatal signals and exiting
processes when the OOM logic was enabled. Sigh.
