I sent it to someone called "Matthew Wilcox <>".
Also I cc'd that guy when I only started to point the finger at IDR as
the suspected culprit in that syzcaller report. I thought it was him
who wrote the code...

How do you build it? I wish I had it when debugging but I got linking
errors due to missing spin_lock_init, so I decided it wasn't up-to-date.


P.S. I'll forward your message to all the recepients of my patch, to let
them know it's wrong and you have a better one.
