I'm really having a hard time doing any fuzzing after applying this
patch. I'm not sure it's related directly, but
the ldisc hangup lockup happens quite quickly and every time, so I
can't really get any good fuzzing done.

I'm not saying that this patch series is causing it, just saying that
I can't really test it at this point due to
that other lockup.


Thanks,
Sasha
