Hmm, interesting. I assume the exit is caused by the SIGKILL, right?
If yes, then why it hasn't coughed early in __mem_cgroup_try_charge

If this is about PF_EXITING then we should handle that earlier in the
code chain (__mem_cgroup_try_charge sounds like a proper place). Let me

Thanks for debugging this!
