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

    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.


    /* 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>
