No, I mentioned watchdog because it's the only timer_list in struct

Offset analysis is an interesting idea though. Look at this:

IDA says that for syzkaller's vmlinux, net_device has a size of 0xc80
and wg_device has a size of 0x880. 0xc80+0x880=5376. Coincidence that
the address offset is just after what wg uses?
