Broken version (653f0d05be0948e7610bb786e6570bb6c48a4e75) is there, its
fixed replacement (a3d1e7eb5abe3aa1095bc75d1a6760d3809bd672) is not.

Look, I realize that your setup is oriented to "followup commit Y fixes
a bug in earlier commit X", and sometimes it's the only possibility
(when X has already been in mainline), but in general it's spelled
"bisection hazard for no damn reason". Fixes are folded in.
Routinely. What's more, in this case the fixed version had been done
(and pushed out) before syzbot has seen the original, so putting
any metadata into commit message hadn't been an option.

If there is some format understandable for syzbot for such cases
("bug is caused by commit X; Y is a replacement that should not
exhibit the same bug, so if you see that behaviour on a tree
that doesn't contain X, report it. X-containing trees ought
to go extinct reasonably soon"), please tell what it is.
Otherwise this situation will keep repeating - I am not going
to stop folding fixes into developing patches.

Speaking of bisect hazards, I'd recommend to check how your bisect
went - the bug is definitely local to this commit and I really
wonder what had caused the bisect to go wrong in this particular
case.
