...the readme has some more setup instructions:
https://github.com/pmem/ndctl/blob/master/README.md

0day has sometimes run this test suite automatically, but we need to
get that more robust because setting up this environment is a bit of a
hoop to jump through with the need to setup the nfit_test module.

Today's -next, but backed up to that above commit. I was also seeing
CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST spamming the logs, and a crash in the crypto layer.

Should not be running in parallel with anything this test is
performing a series of namespace setup and teardown events.

Wait, where did the call to "percpu_ref_get()" go? I think that's the bug.
