We were way ahead of syzbot in this case.  :-)

I reported the problem Tuesday morning:

	https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/4/4/814

And within a few hours Waiman had proposed a fix:

	https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10322639/

Note also that it's not ext4 specific.  It can be trivially reproduced using any one of:

kvm-xfstests -c ext4 generic/068
kvm-xfstests -c btrfs generic/068
kvm-xfstests -c xfs generic/068

(Basically, any file system that supports freeze/thaw.)

Cheers,
