In my opinion this is a valid behavior, and the test is just weird; it's passing
in *both* an unaddressable payload and an invalid description, so it's not clear
which case it's meant to be testing. (Generally, if a syscall will fail for
more than one reason, it's not guaranteed which error code you'll get.)
In any case, once we have a fix merged, it would be nice for there to be an ltp
test added for the "NULL payload with nonzero length" case with one of the key
types that crashed the kernel.
