My first guess would be that the openat changes introduced a refcount
leak, but it could also just be a broken error path that hasn't been
seen before.

Are you in a position to get a ktrace covering the offending syscall?
(You can change the assertion to a printf so it doesn't crash; the
worst it's likely to do is leak memory.)
