Agreed, although unfortunately I wasn't able to make the reproducer
cause a failure _without_ the patch.  Perhaps something other than
enabling FAILSLAB and KASAN was needed?

#syz test https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tytso/ext4.git test

Let's see if the Syzbot can confirm that the patch addresses the problem.
