It got caught before it got committed, so not that bad.

My current test-case for 21337 is 'visit a bunch of files, make sure
global-auto-revert is turned on and auto-revert-use-notify is t, run
Gnus (or anything else that makes TLS connections), wait for errors to
be signalled by inotify'. I don't know how to write a regression test
for that.
