A report at 2019/01/05 10:08 from "no output from test machine (2)"
( https://syzkaller.appspot.com/text?tag=CrashLog&x=1700726f400000 )
says that there are flood of memory allocation failure messages.
Since continuous memory allocation failure messages itself is not
recognized as a crash, we might be misunderstanding that this problem
is not occurring recently. It will be nice if we can run testcases
which are executed on bpf-next tree.
