Hi Hillf,

Thanks for looking at this.  For some reason, your e-mails with the
patch are available on the syzkaller-bugs google groups archive.  For

But even though your messages appear to be cc'ed to linux-kernel, I'm
not seeing your messages on's mail archives.  (wWith
apologies to Lewis Caroll) "Curiouser and curiouser...."

This makes me worried that somehow some or all of your messages to
linux-ext4@ or linux-kernel@ on this matter are somehow getting lost.
We see syzkaller's reply to your messages, and anything that you've
cc'ed to is available archived on
Google Groups.  However, if there were any other messages that you
have sent, they may have been unseed by anyone else.  :-(

If you could send a patch with a full description and the appropriate
Fixes: and CC: stable tags, could you make sure that you explicitly Cc
me, just in case something is funny going on with your e-mails to
mailing lists at

Many thanks!
