Dmitry,

I don't have a the exact look inside the app here, but this looks like
the same as it is able to do
fput on the uinput device.

FYI
Syskaller app is running in userspace (which is for syscall fuzzing) on
kernel which is enabled
with various config fault injection, FAULT_INJECTION,FAIL_SLAB,
FAIL_PAGEALLOC, KASAN etc.

Thanks,
Mukesh
