Hi Takashi,

I've gave an answer to this here:
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/syzkaller-bugs/7ucgCkAJKSk/skZjgavRAQAJ

> In anyway, they are obvious bugs to be fixed, so I'm going to queue to

The options are:
1. You can ask syzbot to test the patch separately. This requires a
reproducer, but there is this bug which has a reproducer and seems to
have the same root cause:
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/syzkaller-bugs/KrPUlf-nm5g/Vk0xEq-HAAAJ
2. You can reproduce it with the reproducer from here:
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/syzkaller-bugs/KrPUlf-nm5g/Vk0xEq-HAAAJ
and then test the patch as extensively as needed.
3. If you have some confidence that the patch fixes the problem, then
mark the commit with the tag:
Reported-by: syzbot+387f48da65cb522abfe8@syzkaller.appspotmail.com
then syzbot will notify if this still happens after the commit reaches
tested trees.
