May I politely inquire why am I getting Cc on the slew of ucma reports?
My last involvement with that thing that wouldn't have been absolutely
trivial had been back in 2012, and even that had been a conversion of
fget() to fdget() - nowhere near the areas implicated by those. Anything
more recent would have no impact on the object code - replacement of
POLL{IN,RDNORM} with EPOLL{IN,RDNORM} (equal values on x86) and two
replacements of unsigned int with __poll_t, which is typedefed to
unsigned.

It's not that I've objections against helping to debug that thing (other
than general aversion to drivers/infinibarf), but I'm really curious -
just what got me volunteered from the syzbot POV?

Al, digging through tons of unpleasant code in fs/{config,debug}fs
at the moment...
