Here is syzkaller log before the crash:
Separate tests are separated by "executing program" lines. If a crash
happens within a user process context, it's possible to figure out
what exactly program triggered the bug. But this happened in a kernel
thread context, so I have no glues so far.

Grepping "socket" there, it was doing lots of things with sockets. Are
we looking for some particular socket type? If there are few programs
that create sockets of that type, then we can narrow down the set:
