Is this repeatable?   I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out the stack trace,
since strchr isn't used anywhere in the code path involved with printing the
ext4 mount options while returning the contents of /proc/mounts (which is
obviously what is going on).

The only strchr that looks even vaguely possible is the one used by
seq_escape() in fs/seq_file, which is called by mangle() and which is called by
show_vfsmnt() in fs/namespace.c.   But the stack trace doesn't look consistent
with that, either.   Part of the problem is between the inline functions, and
the function pointers used by show_vfsmnt, the stack dump in the OOPS message
can be quite misleading.
