That's because I know nothing about sg. If you give a command to run,
I will provide it's output.

Did you run it in a loop? First runs pass just fine for me too.

Agree. syzkaller can test very elaborate scenarios, but it needs help
for this (telling what are these "almost valid" inputs). Kernel has
hundreds of APIs, some of them are quite elaborate and require
expertise to use (and undocumented), we can't describe all of them.
Frequently after adding a proper description, syzkaller finds a dozen
or two of bugs in the subsystem.
