Ok, makes sense. Looking back in the history, I also see other bugfixes
from the same author.

Adding Martin Schiller to Cc: for a few questions:

- What hardware are you using for X.25?
- Would you be available to be listed in the MAINTAINERS file
as a contact for net/x25?
- Does your bug fix address the latest issue found by syzbot[1],
or do you have an idea to fix it if not?
