Hi Takashi,

The reproducer for this is trivially simple:

https://syzkaller.appspot.com/x/repro.syz?id=4913841943085056

(and I guess perf_event_open is red herring).

But the really important part there is probably this: Fault:true
FaultCall:2 FaultNth:18
And you can see where it actually happened in the raw console log:

Raw console output: https://syzkaller.appspot.com/x/log.txt?id=6314122077536256

Does it explain things?
