AF_ALG definitely should be locked down more, but we should fix the bugs before
they get hidden; after all, they are likely reachable in other ways as well.
There is a bug in pcrypt which seems to be causing some of these reports.  I've
sent out a fix and will mark the reports as a duplicate of the first:

#syz dup: KASAN: use-after-free Read in __list_del_entry_valid (2)

(It's a bit messy because the bug is causing a bogus pointer to be kfree()'d,
which can result in different symptoms, especially with slab merging.)
