Not sure if it's the same issue, but we had an unexpected OOM with Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, 4.4.0-91.

It's the first time it happened in the last 3 months of using this kernel, so it's not a huge issue at the moment, unless it starts to happen frequently, but it is concerning.

If this becomes a issue I could try the

vm.min_free_kbytes = 1000000
and
vm.zone_reclaim_mode = 1

but I'm concerned it may affect performance. Expecially the zone_reclaim parameter.

Anyway, I attached the full OOM log.
