What’s xfs setup are you talking about? This is simple xfs rootfs and then trigger swapping. Nothing tricky here as it hit on multiple machines within a few seconds on linux-next.

Well, the memory pressure workloads have been running for years on daily linux-next builds and never saw this one happened once. Also, the reverting is ONLY to revert your patch on the top of linux-next will stop the splat, so there is no not testing the same kernel at all.
