I did the following:

- Start with clean v6.2-rc3
Perform echo, did not see issue

- Applied your 5 patches (includes the zsmalloc: turn chain size config option
into UL constant patch). Took default value for ZSMALLOC_CHAIN_SIZE of 8.
Performed echo, recreated issue.

Perform echo, did not see issue

I have not looked into the details of your patches or elsewhere. Just thought
it might be related to your series because of the above. And, since your
series was fresh in your mind this may trigger some thought/explanation.

It is certainly possible that root cause could be elsewhere and your series is
just exposing that. I can take a closer look on Monday.
