I agree, ut seems that the issue is not related to bpf and probably
can be reproduced without CONFIG_CGROUP_BPF. d979a39d7242e06 indeed
seems closer to the origin.

Btw, based on the number of reported-by tags it seems that there was
a real issue which the patch is fixing. Maybe you'll a couple of words
about how it reveals itself in the real life?

Thanks!
