I like that this can't be circumvented by changing the process name, because it
dereferences a NULL pointer when it gets to the end of the list. However, I'm a
bit uneasy with updating just this syscall. I suggest we go farther and just do:

diff --git a/init/main.c b/init/main.c
index 598e278b46f7..24f4422cb3c9 100644
--- a/init/main.c
+++ b/init/main.c
@@ -547,6 +547,8 @@ asmlinkage __visible void __init start_kernel(void)
char *command_line;
char *after_dashes;

+ return;
+
set_task_stack_end_magic(&init_task);
smp_setup_processor_id();
debug_objects_early_init();

Please also make sure to add a Reported-by line for each one of the 475 open
syzbot bug reports, so they get properly closed. Thanks!

- Eric
