The dump_header does not print the memcg's name when the system
oom happened. So users cannot locate the certain container which
contains the task that has been killed by the oom killer. System
oom report will contain the memcg's name after this patch.

Changes since v1:
- replace adding mem_cgroup_print_oom_info with printing the memcg's
  name only.
