Another interesting KCSAN report :

static inline s64 percpu_counter_read_positive(struct percpu_counter *fbc)
{
s64 ret = fbc->count; // data-race ....

barrier(); /* Prevent reloads of fbc->count */
if (ret >= 0)
return ret;
return 0;
}

How was this code supposed to work at all on 32bit arches ???

Using READ_ONCE(fbc->count) alone will not help.
