Maybe.

Other thing:

 unmap_mapping_range()
   i_mmap_lock_read(mapping);
   unmap_mapping_range_tree()
     unmap_mapping_range_vma()
       zap_page_range_single()
         unmap_single_vma()
	   untrack_pfn()
	     vma->vm_flags &= ~VM_PAT;

It seems we modify ->vm_flags without mmap_sem taken, means we can corrupt
them.

Sasha could you check if you hit untrack_pfn()?

The problem probably was hidden by exclusive i_mmap_lock on
unmap_mapping_range(), but it's not exclusive anymore afrer Dave's
patchset.

Konstantin, you've modified untrack_pfn() back in 2012 to change
->vm_flags. Any coments?

For now, I would propose to revert the commit and probably re-introduce it
after v3.19:

Subject: [PATCH] Revert "mm/memory.c: share the i_mmap_rwsem"

This reverts commit c8475d144abb1e62958cc5ec281d2a9e161c1946.

There are several[1][2] of bug reports which points to this commit as potential
cause[3].

Let's revert it until we figure out what's going on.
