Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1492641]
Comment 2 Vladis Dronov 2017-10-06 05:03:11 EDT
this is not a security flaw, so closing this bz as not-a-security-bug. fixing this as a regular bugfix is handled in bz1491465.
Comment 3 Justin M. Forbes 2018-01-29 11:46:40 EST
This was fixed for Fedora with the 4.13 rebases.
