While this bisection looks more likely than the other syzbot entry
that bisected to a version change, I don't think it is correct eitger.

The bisection ended up doing a lot of "git bisect skip" because of the

undefined reference to `nf_nat_icmp_reply_translation'

issue. Also, the memory leak doesn't seem to be entirely reliable:
when the bisect does 10 runs to verify that some test kernel is bad,
there are a couple of cases where only one or two of the ten run
failed.

Which makes me wonder if one or two of the "everything OK" runs were
actually buggy, but just happened to have all ten pass...
