Yes, mount(0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) is mount with 0 arguments. Most
likely it returns EFAULT.
Since the reproducer have "threaded":true,"collide":true and no C
repro, most likely this is a subtle race. So it attempted to remove
mount(0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) but it did not crash, so the conclusion
was that it's somehow needed. You can actually see that other
reproducers for this bug do not have this mount, but are otherwise
similar.

With "threaded":true,"collide":true the execution mode is not just
"execute each syscall once one after another".
The syscalls are executed in separate threads and actually twice. You
can see the approximate execution mode in this C program:
https://gist.githubusercontent.com/dvyukov/c3a52f012e7cff9bdebf3935d35245cf/raw/b5587824111a1d982c985b00137ae8609572335b/gistfile1.txt
Yet using the C program did not trigger the crash somehow (maybe just
slightly different timings).

Since syzkaller was able to reproduce it multiple times, it looks like
a real bug rather than an induced memory corruption or something.
