That's useful information, but we should not stay frozen on the 5.8.7
kernel for much longer.  5.8.8 contains many bug fixes, some of which
might fix potentially exploitable flaws.

It would be useful to know if this problem still occurs with 5.8.9,
which has since come out.  If so, we should do a bisection between 5.8.7
and 5.8.8 to find out which upstream commit introduced the problem.

Would anyone like to investigate this further?
