When a removal of the last mark on inode / vfsmount races with a
notification about new event on that object, the kernel can crash. Test
for this failure. The problem was fixed by kernel commit d90a10e2444b
"fsnotify: Fix fsnotify_mark_connector race".

+ * DESCRIPTION
+ * Test for inotify mark connector destruction race.
+ *
+ * Kernels prior to 4.17 have a race when the last fsnotify mark on the inode
+ * is being deleted while another process reports event happening on that
+ * inode. When the race is hit, the kernel crashes or loops.
+ *
+ * The problem has been fixed by commit:
+ * d90a10e2444b "fsnotify: Fix fsnotify_mark_connector race"
