This is, fairly obviously, incorrect. Same with the bisection for
6693adf1698864d21734, which is really the same underlying problem as
this one (though at a different code site).

However, it stands out that this was bisected to a commit that adds a
new generic netlink family in both cases.

This makes sense - the reproducer identifies the family by *number*, but
that number isn't stable, generic netlink families should be identified
by *name*.

Perhaps somehow syzbot could be taught that, so that the bisection is
stable across kernels with different generic netlink families
registered?

Alternatively, we _could_ add some kind of stable ID mode, but I'm not
sure we really want to ... since that would mean people start hardcoding
IDs?
