The kernel .text needs to be more than 512MB for the overlap to happen. 

    ffffffff80000000 - ffffffffa0000000 (=512 MB)  kernel text mapping, from phys 0

Also, it is bizarre that symbol resolution resolved ffffffffa0f12560 to 
a symbol that is in module space where af_netlink.o is surely not because of 
"obj-y := af_netlink.o" in the Makefile. 

What does your /proc/kallsyms show when sorted with regards to the symbols
in question?

Also curious are the addresses you have on the stack:

0xffffffff9ff69d26 is just a small space before the beginning of the module 
mapping space, at the end of the kernel text mapping. Unless there are 
some tricks on those mappings, they should be unused, or perhaps 
CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is at play here?

And also, the Oops code of 0003 (PF_WRITE and PF_USER) might hint at
what Dave wrote.
