Yes, looks like you are right, it faults on the return statement, so the
data-pointer seems not to be mapped. I looked at another instance:

The trapping instruction is:

	movzbl 0x7c(%rax),%eax

Which is a pointer-dereference, with %rax=0xffffe8ffffccc870. The 'data'
pointer is allocated with alloc_percpu().

And alloc_percpu() calls down into pcpu_alloc(), which allocates new
percpu chunks using vmalloc() on x86. And there we are again in the
vmalloc area.
