Umm... name_to_handle_at() in your log:
name_to_handle_at(r4, &(0x7f0000003000-0x6)="2e2f62757300", &(0x7f0000003000-0xd)={0xc, 0x0, "cd21"}, &(0x7f0000002000)=0x0, 0x1000)
and unless I'm misreading what you are printing there, you have "./bus0"
passed as the second argument. Right? That's pretty much why I asked about
other possible calls triggering it...

If you are somehow getting there with empty name and if there's another
thread closing these memfd descriptors, I understand what's going on there.
It's how we are getting that empty name on your syscall arguments that
looks very odd...
