What's strange it that a bug in overlay code cannot be triggered if overlay
isn't mounted and as it is the repro couldn't mount overlayfs at all, at
lease with my kernel config.
The bounds check that causes mount failure is in vfs code, not in
overlayfs code,
so not sure what exactly went on there.

Sure, but it can add more insight for analysis.

Thanks,
