I did. The tls test under tools/testing/selftests/net seems to be the
culprit. More information below.

After finding the test that was resulting in the BUG, I decided to check
again against 5.3.13 (= BUG). I had recently compiled 5.4.1 as well so I
decided to run this test against 5.4.1 (= BUG). After this I realized I
had 5.3.9 kernel kept away so I decided to run the test against that too
(= BUG). After 5.3.9's error something didn't feel right. Mind you I was
using kselftest from linux/next so I got suspicious about the test
it-self. I ran kselftest from 5.4.1 on kernels 5.4.1 and 5.3.13 and none
of them resulted in the BUG this time. After a bit of digging I found
out the next branch had 2 additional test cases for the tls test, and
one of them (sendmsg_fragmented) is the actual culprit that was causing
TL;DR: tools/testing/selftests/net/tls.ci:sendmsg_fragmented from the
next tree appears to be broken(?)
