Hi Johannes,

Thanks for the feeback.
syzbot tests within a net namespace (which is free of eth0 and other
stuff) and does setup of devices in that namespace. For bugs, it first
tries to reproduce them in that environment and if that succeeds it
tries to simplify the reproducer by stripping namespace/device setup
(which is quite verbose), and if that succeeds it provides this
simplified reproducer.
In this case it decided that namespace setup is not important. .config
is still important, but it is provided.

Are you able to reproduce the WARNING with the provided config? If
not, we can look as to how to improve this.
