Bloody hell... So you end up with name == (char *)&handle->handle_type + 3?
Looks like it would be a lot more useful to dump the actual contents of
those suckers right before the syscall...

Anyway, that explains WTF is going on. The bug is in path_init() and
it triggers when you pass something with dentry allocated by d_alloc_pseudo()
as dfd, combined with empty pathname. You need to have the file closed
by another thread, and have that another thread get out of closing syscall
(close(), dup2(), etc.) before the caller of path_init() gets to
complete_walk(). We need to make sure that this sucker gets DCACHE_RCUPDATE
while it's still guaranteed to be pinned down. Could you try to reproduce
with the patch below applied?
