It would need to be an image from the time the warning is reproduced,
I'm not sure how much timing is also important. But iirc adding raw test
images to fstests was not welcome, so it would have to be a reproducer
and given that the syzkaller source is not human readable I'm not sure
it would be welcome either.

Maybe there's some middle ground when the image is created by mkfs and
filled with the data and then the mount loop is started from shell. But
that means to untangle the C reproducer.
