git bisect shows the first bad commit:

[10befea91b61c4e2c2d1df06a2e978d182fcf792] mm: memcg/slab: use a single set of
kmem_caches for all allocations

And I have double checked that the above commit is really the first bad
commit for the list corruption issue of 'list_del corruption, ffffe1c241b00408->next
is LIST_POISON1 (dead000000000100)', see the detailed stack trace and
kernel oops log in the following link:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200916202026.GC38283@mit.edu/

And the kernel config is the one(without KASAN) used by Theodore in GCE VM, see
the following link:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200917143012.GF38283@mit.edu/

The reproducer is xfstests generic/038. In my setting, test device is virtio-scsi, and
scratch device is virtio-blk.
