Hi Andreas,
	I tried running it multiple times but saw no crash (or error
messages in dmesg). Can you send me the crash logs? What's the behaviour
when the testcase is run on an unpatched kernel?

The watch-vfork test actually fails on my system (4 unexpected failures)
irrespective of the kernel containing the patch or not.

P.S.: I'd been on vacation and couldn't look at this issue during then.
