From bisection log:

testing release v4.17
testing commit 29dcea88779c856c7dc92040a0c01233263101d4 with gcc (GCC) 8.1.0

testing release v4.15
testing commit d8a5b80568a9cb66810e75b182018e9edb68e8ff with gcc (GCC) 8.1.0
all runs: OK
# git bisect start v4.16 v4.15

Why bisect started between 4.16 4.15 instead of 4.17 4.16?


testing commit c14376de3a1befa70d9811ca2872d47367b48767 with gcc (GCC) 8.1.0

# git bisect bad c14376de3a1befa70d9811ca2872d47367b48767

Why c14376de3a1befa70d9811ca2872d47367b48767 is bad? There was no stack corruption.
It looks like the syzbot were bisecting a different bug - "kernel panic: Out of memory and no killable processes..."
And bisection for that bug seems to be correct. kvmalloc() in vmemdup_user() may eat up all memory unlike kmalloc which is limited by KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE (4MB usually).
