Thanks.  Here is what I came up with to tie the loose ends of this

Subject: [PATCH] fsmonitor: do not compare bitmap size with size of split index

3444ec2e ("fsmonitor: don't fill bitmap with entries to be removed",
2019-10-11) added a handful of sanity checks that make sure that a
bit position in fsmonitor bitmap does not go beyond the end of the
index.  As each bit in the bitmap corresponds to a path in the
index, this is the right check most of the time.

Except for the case when we are in the split-index mode and looking
at a delta index that is to be overlayed on the base index but
before the base index has actually been merged in, namely in read_
and write_fsmonitor_extension().  In these codepaths, the entries in
the split/delta index is typically a small subset of the entire set
of paths (otherwise why would we be using split-index?), so the
bitmap used by the fsmonitor is almost always larger than the number
of entries in the partial index, and the incorrect comparison would
trigger the BUG().
