There seems to be a nasty bug in bpf that causes assorted crashes
throughout the kernel for some time. I've seen a bunch of reproducers
that do something with bpf and then cause a random crash. The more
unpleasant ones are the bugs without reproducers, because for these we
don't have a way to link them back to the bpf bug but they are still
hanging there without good explanation, e.g. maybe a part of one-off
crashes in moderation:
https://syzkaller.appspot.com/upstream#moderation2

Such bugs are nice to fix asap to not produce more and more random
crash reports.

Hillf, did you understand the mechanics of this bug and memory
corruption? A good question is why this was unnoticed by KASAN. If we
could make it catch it at the point of occurrence, then it would be a
single bug report clearly attributed to bpf rather then dozens of
assorted crashes.
