Can you give an example of when this might happen? It sounds like you're
actually hitting this, so a backtrace would be nice.

I'm a bit confused as to when why we'd try to vmap() pages that we
didn't have a legitimate struct page for -- where did these addresses
come from?

It sounds like this is going wrong at a higher level, and we're passing
entirely bogus struct page pointers around. This seems like the sort of
thing DEBUG_VIRTUAL or similar should check when we initially generate
the struct page pointer.

Thanks,
Mark.
