I *think* the reproducer boils down to the attached, but I can't get syzkaller
to work and the attached sample does not cause the oops to occur. Can you try
it in your environment?

This might not be the correct bisection point. If you look at the attached
sample, you're mixing AF_INET and AF_INET6. If you try AF_INET throughout,
that might get a different point. On the other hand, since you've bound the
socket, the AF_INET6 passed to socket() should be ignored.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <arpa/inet.h>
#include <linux/rxrpc.h>

static const unsigned char inet4_addr[4] = {
0xe0, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01

int main(void)
struct sockaddr_rxrpc srx;
int fd;

memset(&srx, 0, sizeof(srx));
srx.srx_family = AF_RXRPC;
srx.srx_service = 0;
srx.transport_type = AF_INET;
srx.transport_len = sizeof(srx.transport.sin);
srx.transport.sin.sin_family = AF_INET;
srx.transport.sin.sin_port = htons(0x4e21);
memcpy(&srx.transport.sin.sin_addr, inet4_addr, 4);

fd = socket(AF_RXRPC, SOCK_DGRAM, AF_INET6);
if (fd == -1) {

if (bind(fd, (struct sockaddr *)&srx, sizeof(srx)) == -1) {


// Whilst sleeping, hit with:

return 0;
