Have you forgotten ' Reported-by: syzbot+263f8c0d007dc09b2dda@...kaller.appspotmail.com' ?

Why is this safe ?

I think that this very unusual construct needs a comment, because this is not obvious.

This really looks like an attempt to silence syzbot to me.

Again, this looks suspicious to me. I can not explain why this would be safe.
