Some more testing showed that this is not caused by the patch after all,
sorry for the noise.

The crash happens quite reliably, but with a rather low probability it
does not occur. When I have tested 4.14.11 without the patch it was
obviously such a low probability event - in the meantime 4.14.11 without
the patch also crashed. The situation is also unchanged with 4.15-rc7.

Interestingly, it happens only when using the boot switch "-b", i.e.:

systemd-nspawn -b -D <path to rootfs>

_and_ terminating the container by pressing ^] three times. Other
combinations (e.g., no "-b" and terminating with ^]^]^], "-b" and
terminating by running shutdown inside the container) work just fine.
Anyway, this is already off-topic and might be subject to a different
