Yeah.

Can you please run RIP through ./scripts/faddr2line to see where exactly
are we looping? I expect the loop iterating over marks to notify but better
be sure.

How easily can you hit this? Are you able to run debug kernels / inspect
crash dumps when the issue occurs? Also testing with the latest mainline
kernel (4.16) would be welcome whether this isn't just an issue with the
backport of fsnotify fixes from Miklos.
