Subject: KCSAN: data-race in ext4_fc_commit / ext4_fc_commit


When using Healer( to fuzz
the Linux kernel, I found a data-race vulnerability in ext4_fc_commit
/ ext4_fc_commit, which looks strange.
Sorry, data-race is usually difficult to reproduce. I cannot provide
you with a reproducing program.
I hope that the call stack information in the crash log can help you
locate the problem.
Kernel config and full log can be found in the attachment.

Here is the detailed information:
