Hum, interesting! I'd guess this might be caused by f758eeab - adding
Fengguang and Christoph to CC. But I'm really failing to see how this could
happen but interesting thing is that in two of the three cases the files
are on virtual filesystems (once cgroup, once sysfs). These both use
noop_backing_dev_info.
