James, please include this patch for 5.1-rc1, for failing to include
this patch will prevent various trees (SELinux/Smack/AppArmor) from
proper testing due to this problem because syzbot is enabling both
TOMOYO and one of SELinux/Smack/AppArmor via lsm= boot parameter.

By including this patch and building kernels with this config option
enabled, syzbot will be able to continue proper testing.
