Looks like syzbot found this in Linus tree with HEAD commit 5b394b2ddf03 ("Linux 4.19-rc1")
one day later net PR got merged via 050cdc6c9501 ("Merge git://").

This PR contained a couple of fixes I did on sockmap code during audit such as:

Looking at the reproducer syzkaller found it contains:

  r1 = bpf$MAP_CREATE(0x0, &(0x7f0000002e40)={0x12, 0x0, 0x4, 0x6e, 0x0, 0x1}, 0x68)

So it found the crash with map type of sock hash and key size of 0x0 (which is invalid),
where subsequent map update triggered the corruption. I just did a 'syz test' and it
wasn't able to trigger the crash anymore.

#syz fix: bpf, sockmap: fix sock_hash_alloc and reject zero-sized keys
