Hi the above kernel null pointer dereference bug has nothing to do
with Joel's fix because I can reproduce it on original 5.15.y [7]
using as while loop [8] (after 36 iterations, the bug fires).
So, Joel's patch is tested good!
Tested-by: Zhouyi Zhou <zhouzhouyi@gmail.com>

In following days, I am like to dig out the root of the null pointer
dereference bug.
