Another issue somewhat related to alloc_anon_inode() is that the shmem code
in some cases assumes the inode struct was allocated via shmem_alloc_inode(),
which allocates a struct shmem_inode_info, which is a superset of struct inode
with additional fields for things like spinlocks.

These additional fields don't get allocated/ininitialized in the case of
restrictedmem, so when restrictedmem_getattr() tries to pass the inode on to
shmem handler, it can cause a crash.

For instance, the following trace was seen when executing 'sudo lsof' while a
process/guest was running with an open memfd FD:

As a workaround we've been doing the following, but it's probably not the
proper fix:
