oom, oom_reaper: do not enqueue same task twice

Arkadiusz reported that enabling memcg's group oom killing causes
strange memcg statistics where there is no task in a memcg despite the
number of tasks in that memcg is not 0.  It turned out that there is a
bug in wake_oom_reaper() which allows enqueuing same task twice which
makes impossible to decrease the number of tasks in that memcg due to a
refcount leak.

This bug existed since the OOM reaper became invokable from
task_will_free_mem(current) path in out_of_memory() in Linux 4.7,

  T1@P1     |T2@P1     |T3@P1     |OOM reaper
  ----------+----------+----------+------------
                                   # Processing an OOM victim in a different memcg domain.
                        try_charge()
                          mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
                            mutex_lock(&oom_lock)
             try_charge()
               mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
                 mutex_lock(&oom_lock)
  try_charge()
    mem_cgroup_out_of_memory()
      mutex_lock(&oom_lock)
                            out_of_memory()
                              oom_kill_process(P1)
                                do_send_sig_info(SIGKILL, @p1)
                                mark_oom_victim(T1@P1)
                                wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued.
                            mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
                 out_of_memory()
                   mark_oom_victim(T2@P1)
                   wake_oom_reaper(T2@P1) # T2@P1 is enqueued.
                 mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
      out_of_memory()
        mark_oom_victim(T1@P1)
        wake_oom_reaper(T1@P1) # T1@P1 is enqueued again due to oom_reaper_list == T2@P1 && T1@P1->oom_reaper_list == NULL.
      mutex_unlock(&oom_lock)
                                   # Completed processing an OOM victim in a different memcg domain.
                                   spin_lock(&oom_reaper_lock)
                                   # T1P1 is dequeued.
                                   spin_unlock(&oom_reaper_lock)

but memcg's group oom killing made it easier to trigger this bug by
calling wake_oom_reaper() on the same task from one out_of_memory()
request.

Fix this bug using an approach used by commit 855b0183 ("oom,
oom_reaper: disable oom_reaper for oom_kill_allocating_task").  As a
side effect of this patch, this patch also avoids enqueuing multiple
threads sharing memory via task_will_free_mem(current) path.
