Thanks, this finally made me understanding the whole picture!

Well, how about like below?


KMSAN is not upstream yet, though, we want to upstream it later. For
now, it lives in github.com/google/kmsan and is based on a reasonably
fresh upstream tree. As the result, any patch testing requests for
KMSAN bugs need to go to KMSAN tree
(https://github.com/google/kmsan.git repo, master branch).
A standard way for triggering the test with KMSAN tree is to send an
email to syzbot+HASH address containing the following line:

#syz test: https://github.com/google/kmsan.git master

and attach/inline your test patch in the same mail.
