Umm... git log for-linus in vfs.git since yesterday:

commit 9ee332d99e4d5a97548943b81c54668450ce641b
Author: Al Viro <>
Date: Mon Dec 18 15:05:07 2017 -0500

sget(): handle failures of register_shrinker()

Signed-off-by: Al Viro <>

commit bb422a738f6566f7439cd347d54e321e4fe92a9f

mm,vmscan: Make unregister_shrinker() no-op if register_shrinker() failed.

Syzbot caught an oops at unregister_shrinker() because combination of
commit 1d3d4437eae1bb29 ("vmscan: per-node deferred work") and fault
injection made register_shrinker() fail and the caller of
register_shrinker() did not check for failure.
