But why? These one-off sporadic crashes reported by syzbot looks
exactly like a subtle race and your patch touches sem_exit_ns involved
in all reports.
So if you don't spot anything else, I would say close these 3 reports
with this patch (I see you already included Reported-by tags which is
great!) and then wait for syzbot reaction. Since we got 3 of them, if
it's still not fixed I would expect that syzbot will be able to
retrigger this later again.
