So your mysqld has been killed by the global OOM not memcg. But why when
you seem to be perfectly fine regarding memory? I guess the following
backtrace is relevant:

This would suggest that an unexpected ENOMEM leaked during page fault
path. I do not see which one could that be because you said THP
(CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE) are disabled (and the other patch I have
mentioned in the thread should fix that issue - btw. the patch is
already scheduled for stable tree).
 __do_fault, do_anonymous_page and do_wp_page call
mem_cgroup_newpage_charge with GFP_KERNEL which means that
we do memcg OOM and never return ENOMEM. do_swap_page calls
mem_cgroup_try_charge_swapin with GFP_KERNEL as well.

I might have missed something but I will not get to look closer before
2nd January.
