Does that crash the Linux kernel?
Don:
No. I updated the title and description to reflect this. It resulted in some brief access to uninitialized members.
This was found during some internal testing, no bugs were ever filed for this change.

Thanks for your review.

If it fixes a crash(?), please add a Fixes: tag so it can be backported to the stable series.



Kind regards,

Paul
