No need to "hope"; you could split up Matthew's patch yourself, and test and
send the resulting patches. From the above thread, it looks like the networking
developers want one patch to fix the improper use of GFP_ATOMIC (which is the
bug reported by syzbot), and a separate patch to convert qrtr to use the XArray.

Looks like something timer-related. You'll need to investigate more, write and
test a fix, and send it to the appropriate kernel mailing lists and developers
(which will probably be different from the ones receiving this current thread).
