Well, so far it is illegal for a module to pass NULL as a path in struct
notify_event. So the segfault you point out only happens with your
module if I'm right. Or have you seen this segfault also with the
inotify and fam modules?

Okay, you're working on the 3.0 code base. The code base for master is
quite a bit off from that code. In master the potential segfault is
already fixed.

Can you please re-post the change in the API patch as a git format-patch
formatted patch against master separately?
