Looking at crash rate and dates here:

It looks like something that reached upstream tree yesterday.
However, there is one outliner: 2018/09/30 08:58. So either that one
crash was something else, or syzkaller learned how to reproduce it
more often...
But maybe if you know some recent suspect patch that touched that
area, that may be the easiest way to localize the bug.
