Ah, so is it a bug in Syzkaller that it is printing
ioctl$EXT4_IOC_SETFLAGS when 0x6611 is in fact EXT4_IOC_SWAP_BOOT,

It was probably some other process racing with EXT4_IOC_SWAP_BOOT.
The patch I referenced in my previous e-mail protects against
additional scenarios where someone might be trying to punch a whole
into a file that is being swapped into the bootloader ioctl. This
particular ioctl isn't yet being used by anyone, so it had some other
issues as well, such as not interacting well with inline_data-enabled
file systems --- not that any bootloader would be small enough that it
would fit in an inline_data inode, but we're basically proofing the
code against a malicious (or buggy) root-privileged program... such as
syzbot. :-)
