Can you test on a rawhide kernel? The maintainers mentioned there was a fix https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=52f5631a4c05 that might cause problems
Tried with 4.10.0-0.rc7.git3.1.fc26 kernel and it does work!
Confirming Saša's observation: Installing kernel-4.10.0-0.rc8.git2.1.fc26 from https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=8 made the problem go away.
This fix is now in stable releases. Thanks for reporting and testing.
