was just reported today. Seems to have been caused by

commit 3ac7fe5a4aab409bd5674d0b070bce97f9d20872
Author: Thomas Gleixner <>

infrastructure to debug (dynamic) objects

which was introduced just after v2.6.25, but not discovered until now,
probably because it requires the (admittedly obscure) combination of
lockdep and slub/object debugging.


"The animistic metaphor of the bug that maliciously sneaked in while
the programmer was not looking is intellectually dishonest as it
disguises that the error is the programmer's own creation."
