I sent a patch to fix this bug (https://lore.kernel.org/linux-fsdevel/20190629202744.12396-1-ebiggers@kernel.org/T/#u)

Dmitry, any idea why syzbot found such a bizarre reproducer for this?
This is actually reproducible by a simple single threaded program:

#include <unistd.h>

#define __NR_move_mount 429
#define MOVE_MOUNT_F_EMPTY_PATH 0x00000004

int main()
{
int fds[2];

pipe(fds);
syscall(__NR_move_mount, fds[0], "", -1, "/", MOVE_MOUNT_F_EMPTY_PATH);
}

FYI, it also isn't really appropriate for syzbot to bisect all bugs in new
syscalls to wiring them up to x86, and then blame all the x86 maintainers.
Normally such bugs will be in the syscall itself, regardless of architecture.
