Mhm, I would strongly expect that we initialize the seq number after allocation.

It could be that we also have situations were the correct start value is 0xffffffff or something like that instead.

Why does this matter?
when the user queue A's u64 address (fence address) is allocated to the newly created user queue B, we see a problem. User queue B calls the signal IOCTL which creates a new fence having the wptr as the seq number, in amdgpu_userq_fence_create function we have a check where we are comparing the rptr and wptr value (rptr >= wptr). since the rptr value is read from the u64 address which has the user queue A's wptr data, this rptr >= wptr condition gets satisfied and we are dropping the reference before the actual command gets processed in the hardware.
If we clear this u64 value on free, we dont see this problem.

Yeah, but that doesn't belongs into the seq64 handling.

Instead the code which allocates the seq64 during userqueue created needs to clear it to 0.
