Hi Alan,

Looking at "errno 1", it seems that syz-execprog doesn't have enough
privileges to execute this ioctl, so you might need to run it as root.

However the absence of a C reproducer points to the fact that this is
some kind of a race condition. Those are quite sensitive to timing,
and any difference in the used setup might affect their
reproducibility. I would recommend building the exact kernel revision
with the provided config. For me it took around 3 minutes to
syz-execprog before I saw the WARNING.

Thanks!
