Hi Randy,

+kernel mailing lists again

Please keep kernel lists and developers and CC, there are no kernel
developers on syzkaller-bugs@ list.

This is almost the same as "general protection fault in
p9_fd_create_unix" just for rdma:
Yes, this function needs to check for NULL.

Tomas, I think it makes sense to include rdma into your "9p: fix NULL
pointer dereferences" patch.
