Tetsuo, would you happen to have a C reproducer program that creates
the trace you reported?

I could not quickly find one that by the date would fit to when we
included our change on this syzbot page:
https://syzkaller.appspot.com/bug?id=bae9a2236bfede42cf3d219e6bf6740c583568a4

Jouni, can you please follow up on this report.

Thanks.

Lukas
