Well I didn't get anything from ext4 so far. I did hit one with
fsnotify:

WARNING: kmemcheck: Caught 32-bit read from freed memory (f34a443c)

I think that is list_empty() here where %eax is list_head
and event_list->next is the read location... which definitely
doesn't look like a pointer, if I'm reading it correctly.

inotify_fsnotify.o:

/* did event_priv get attached? */
if (list_empty(&fsn_event_priv->event_list))
143: 8d 43 04 lea 0x4(%ebx),%eax
event_priv = kmem_cache_alloc(event_priv_cachep, GFP_KERNEL);
if (unlikely(!event_priv))
return -ENOMEM;
fsn_event_priv = &event_priv->fsnotify_event_priv_data;
146: 39 43 04 cmp %eax,0x4(%ebx) <=== read here
149: 74 1d je 168 <inotify_handle_event+0x98>
