Btw, it occurred to me that I don't know at all - is this related to
syzkaller? Or is there some other fuzzing you're working on? Can we get
the bug reports from it if it's different? :)

Also, unrelated to that (but I see Dmitry CC'ed), I started wondering if
it'd be helpful to have an easier raw 802.11 inject path on top of say
hwsim0; I noticed some syzbot reports where it created raw sockets, but
that only gets you into the *data* plane of the wifi stack, not into the
*management* plane. Theoretically you could add a monitor interface, but
right now the wifi setup (according to the current docs on github) is
using two IBSS interfaces.

Perhaps an inject path on the mac80211-hwsim "hwsim0" interface would be
something to consider? Or simply adding a third radio that's in
"monitor" mode, so that a raw socket bound to *that* interface can
inject with a radiotap header followed by an 802.11 frame, getting to
arbitrary frame handling code, not just data frames.

Any thoughts?
