If this is related to vdso's, they seem mapped as `r-xp` (not `w):
$ sudo cat /proc/1/maps | grep vdso
7ffc667f5000-7ffc667f7000 r-xp 00000000 00:00 0 [vdso]

map_vdso() in arch/x86/entry/vdso/vma.c doesn't map the VMA as
writable, but it uses VM_MAYWRITE with a comment about GDB setting
breakpoints.

So it sounds like the page protections on the vdso can be changed at
runtime (via mprotect). Maybe syzkaller is tickling that first?

map_vdso_randomized() does call map_vdso(). Maybe if we mprotect the
vdso to be writable, it may be easier to spot the write.
